North Kent College is a further education and higher education college in Kent, England founded in 2014. Its campus in Tonbridge offers numerous courses and qualifications at many levels, from GCSEs and A-levels to vocational routes such as BTEC or NVQ/VRQ Diplomas to work-based Apprenticeships and Degree programmes, validated by the University of Kent, University of Greenwich and Canterbury Christ Church University.

The College's facilities include a 300-seat theatre, fine art, fashion, graphic design and photography studios and darkrooms, television and radio studios, music recording studios, professional training and demo kitchens and purpose-built motor vehicle engineering and construction workshops.


The original West Kent College institution operated in Tonbridge, Tunbridge Wells, Crowborough and Sevenoaks.[1] The Tonbridge campus was redeveloped in the 2000s. Crowborough and Sevenoaks closed in 2006.

It merged into K College in 2010. K College operated across 6 campuses, at Jemmett Road and Henwood in Ashford, Dover, Folkestone, Tonbridge and Royal Tunbridge Wells.[2]

It was subsequently split in 2014, after sustaining a large amount of debt. It was split into two units from 1 August that year:

On 17 May 2019, Hadlow College become the first in the country to go into educational administration.[5] That same year, following a review by the Further Education Commissioner, it was recommended that the Hadlow College Group be split up and taken on by three colleges: North Kent College, East Kent College Group and Capel Manor College.

On the 15th August 2020, the education-related facilities of West Kent College and Hadlow College, including Princess Christian’s Farm and Hadlow College's equestrian centre in Greenwich, transferred to North Kent College.
