The Summer School has welcomed thousands of young people over the past 72 years and enabled the students to join in concentrated ensemble playing and singing. All of our courses are led by leading professional musicians who work at the highest level throughout the year as performers and educators.
Set in 240 acres of beautiful grounds in the heart of Kent, Benenden School has excellent facilities, including a purpose-built theatre, lecture theatre and a new state of the art concert hall is also being built. These amenities have contributed to the Summer School being one of the most popular and successful on offer in the country, allowing students to flourish in an unrivalled setting.
In 2018 we introduced a brand new Music Explorers Course. The two day course catered for budding young instrumentalists who are just starting out on their musical journey. Over the two days, course members created their own music, learnt to be part of an ensemble and was inspired by older musicians.
