Information about the school

Brockhill Park Performing Arts College is set in a stunning 24 hectare site, blessed with its own school farm, and adjacent to a Country Park in this wonderful area of outstanding natural beauty on the beautiful Kent coast.

We aim to provide a top class education to our students preparing them to fulfil not only their potential but to grasp both the challenge and their responsibilities as local, national and global citizens.

We are a non-selective, co-educational comprehensive school with specialist status in Performing Arts and Rural Dimension. We believe in a learning culture which is personalised, creative, engaging and demanding of everybody’s personal best. We strive to ensure our students are happy, positively and actively engaged as members of this school and wider community, and for them to excel in the subjects they study. During their time with us our students learn to work independently, co-operatively and creatively, to take risks in their learning and grow their understanding, so they can apply their subject knowledge to problem solve in the range of ‘real life’ situations they encounter away from the school classroom.

Our specialisms allow us to offer nationally recognised expertise in Dance, Drama, Music and Rural Sciences whilst our Creative Learning agenda permeates all areas of the school.
