Tunbridge Wells is the regional centre for West Kent and North East Sussex. Skinners’ School serves both the town of Tunbridge Wells and its hinterland of villages. The School currently selects solely on academic ability as measured by the KCC PESE (11+) test. Geography will only be used as a tie-breaker between applicants with the same score. It should be noted that the Schools’ Adjudicator affirmed this policy, following a complaint to him in 2009.
