Kew College began in 1927 as a small school located in a shop house in Kew. As the number of pupils grew, the school moved to its permanent home along Cumberland Road in 1953. It became a charitable trust in 1983.
Anne Dobell became Headteacher in autumn 2009, succeeding Diana Lyness (Headteacher 1992-2009).
Kew College averages 270 pupils, with slightly more girls than boys in the later years, as some boys transfer at 7+ or 8+ to the preparatory departments of local independent schools such as Latymer and St Paul's. 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%).
