INDEPENDENT DAY SCHOOL FOR BOYS AND GIRLS AGES 3-16 YEARS, NEAR ROCHESTER, KENT

Welcome to
Gad's Hill School

Gad’s Hill School is set in the expansive and beautiful grounds of the former family home of Charles Dickens, in the village of Higham, just on the outskirts of Rochester, Kent.

Our independent day School is a wonderfully happy and vibrant school, educating girls and boys aged 3-16 years in the Lower and Upper School boasting modern facilities, while retaining its famous literary heritage and many of the traditions established since its foundation in 1924.

"It is a school that exudes traditional values but with a modern approach. The school has a truly family feel to it that envelops the atmosphere within the school community. We have been really impressed with the outstanding leadership from the Headteacher, he inspires confidence and enthusiasm for teaching which is echoed by all the other staff"
