Business Friends


About KC Business Friends

Kent College's parents and the school's wider communities are passionate about their children and the School, and appreciate the companies that support us.  In becoming a Business Friend and taking advantage of our events sponsorship packages, Kent College can be an excellent marketing opportunity for your business by exposing your company name and brand to an ever growing number of existing and potential customers, raising your profile both locally and nationally.

As a Business Friend you will be invited to attend various events throughout the school academic year, and these offer excellent networking opportunities.  Kent College is a member of the West Kent Chamber of Commerce and has hosted Business Exchange Evening events.

Audiences at Kent College events are active members of the Kent College community and include an extensive network of current and prospective families, as well as external visitors and members of the public.  In addition, the Friends Association which you would become a member of, includes business professionals, alumni and community neighbours.  Many of these may already be either your existing or potential customers or clients.

Business Friend sponsorship will allow your organisation to be recognized in several ways:

Acknowledgement in direct mail literature to all Kent College communities and audiences.

  • Advertisement in circulated events programmes.
  • Promotion on the school website.
  • Promotion on display material.
  • Promotion in PR opportunities.
  • Event invitations and opportunities to network.
  • We are also happy to discuss bespoke opportunities to showcase your business throughout the school year or whilst our event runs.
