Established in 1923, Benenden School is located in Kent in the Southeast England, about an hour away from London by train. Benenden School is one of the most popular girls’ school that provides full boarding, often being described as a traditional elite girls’ school with students from royal or prominent families, who could be princesses of some countries. Good School Guide recognised Benenden School as “everyone’s idea of what an English boarding school looks like”. The school is very popular among local students, therefore the entry barrier is relatively high.
