At The Skinners' Kent Academy, our Houses are named after four inspiring, internationally renowned individuals. On joining the Academy, every student is assigned a House which they will be part of throughout their time with us. All our students are provided with opportunities to earn House points through a variety of activities which include quizzes, sports events and subject specific competitions, and in which participation is warmly encouraged.
Our Academy prides itself on our community and aims to develop the students' sense of belonging to their allocated House, by instilling the values of our House System across all the work we do in the Academy.
