About Kemnal Technology College

Kemnal Technology College, located in the Borough of Bromley, is an 11-16 boys school with a mixed sixth form and is part of The Kemnal Academies Trust.

Education can transform people’s lives and at Kemnal Technology College and we are absolutely determined that the students who attend our College will be given the very best opportunities to excel.

The College’s purpose is twofold. We want all students to achieve academic success and we want all students to become well-rounded young men. Students can only achieve this if they feel happy and are provided with a caring environment in which the talents of different individuals are respected and encouraged to flourish.

Our educational philosophy is focused around the character traits we want all our students to acquire before taking their place in the adult world. We want our students:

To be ambitious for themselves. Dreams are achievable and goals can be reached by focusing on the present.

To be considerate to others. Success comes through teamwork and through recognition of other people’s strengths.

To be resilient. Learning is a voyage into the unknown and having the confidence to learn from these experiences.

In summary, a great education is so much more than a narrow focus on examination results. We aim to support and inspire each child to be the very best they can be in every single way.
