“In the money section of the Sunday Times a celebrity is asked each week a series of questions about his finances. One question is ‘what would you say was your best ever investment?’ If Jan and I were asked that question we would say sending both our kids to Rochester Independent College.”

Rochester Independent College offers the smallest class sizes in Kent at the fairest, most competitive fees. The average student to staff ratio in independent secondary schools is 10:1 and in state schools the norm is more like 18:1. At RIC it is 3:1 with an average class size of 8.
RIC is committed to avoiding the kind of inflation busting fee increases that have characterised independent education over the last decade. The College has no access to public funding or the endowments common in traditional independent schools. Both operational and development costs depend entirely on payment of fees. We do not ask parents to contribute to capital projects and work hard to minimise the extra fees that are common in the sector.
