Sevenoaks is one of Kent's most interesting towns. Surrounded by countryside and picturesque villages, and close to some of England's finest heritage and garden attractions, the historic town has a vibrant community and boasts a theatre, a library, a leisure centre and a variety of social activities.
Sevenoaks School is situated at the top of the bustling High Street, within walking distance of an array of shops, coffee bars and restaurants. Behind the school is Knole, one of England's largest country houses, set within a thousand-acre deer park and managed by the National Trust. The park is open to the public for walking, running and recreation, and is accessible from the school grounds. An advantage of Sevenoaks is its transport links.
The town is located not far from the A21 and M25, and is only 30 minutes from Central London by train, with excellent rail links to London Charing Cross, Waterloo and London Bridge. Gatwick Airport and the Channel Tunnel are both within a 45-minute journey by car, making travel to and from the school very easy. Sevenoaks is also less than an hour away from the magnificent Kent coastline, the Dover cliffs, and the popular towns of Rye, Hastings and Eastbourne.
Sevenoaks is a very attractive town and its safe and friendly environment makes it an ideal place for students to study, develop some independence and contribute to the community.
Disabled parking is available in The Flat car park, via Duke’s Meadow entrance, and at Claridge House. Please do let us know in advance if you require disabled parking or wheelchair access to the school, The Space or The Sennocke Centre.
