History[edit]

Kew College began in 1927 as a small school located in a room above a shop in Kew. As the number of pupils grew, the school moved to a large Victorian house in Cumberland Road. In 1953 the school expanded into a second house in Cumberland Road. It became a charitable trust in 1983.[1]

Present day[edit]

Kew College averages 292 pupils between the ages of 3 and 11. As of June 2010, the school scores 69.2% for general parental satisfaction at the Independent School Reviews site, with its highest rating being for academic standards (76.5% satisfaction) and its lowest for sporting quality (63.2%).[2]
