Work with us

RIC is Kent’s fresh alternative to traditional independent education from Year 7 to Sixth Form. All teaching takes place in small, informal groups of mixed ability students. Our teachers are experts in their subjects, comfortable in a first name terms, non-uniform setting, lively and engaging and enjoy the company of young people. 

We employ over 100 local people and have a wonderful team of administrators, gardeners, maintenance, housekeeping and support staff that work with good humour and commitment to make RIC a home for our our students.
