Our Mission

To enable our students to enjoy school, to achieve good academic qualifications and to develop those personal attributes and qualities which will guide them on their journey through life.


Our Vision

To be the first choice independent school for families in Kent who value a well-rounded education for their child. It is our intention that our students leave Gad’s Hill as confident, mature, articulate, pleasant and self-reliant young people who are well equipped to enter the world through a university education or career of their choice.


Our Values

We value Excellence, Enthusiasm, Friendship and Success. These attributes underpin all that we do.
Our Mission and Vision are shaped by our commitment to educate children holistically, as articulated by our school motto:
“First to thine own self be true”.


Our Ethos

Children do well when they are happy at school and at Gad’s we pride ourselves on providing a friendly environment, where enthusiasm and hard work are the foundations for achieving success.

There is more to life than exam results alone and while Gad’s enjoys the reputation of receiving good GCSE results this is not our sole focus. We want to offer our pupils a foundation in life, working with them to become confident, motivated and articulate young people ready for the next stage in their education and life beyond.
