"Outstanding teaching and learning for all students, so that knowledge is embedded and disadvantage is not a barrier to learning. All students reach their potential, so that they are well placed for life beyond school. Ensuring confident, happy and resilient students, who treat others with compassion and respect."

Pupils to arrive and attend the ALC from 11:00am.

Your form tutor will be there to have one final farewell with an ice cream treat before making your way into North hall for 11:45am to start your final Kenton School assembly. If you ordered a hoodie, your leavers book will be ready to collect from the ALC! Bring a pen to get it signed!

Who will win an Oscar? Who will be the first to shed a tear? Which Y7 photographs will be on the screen?

We look forward to seeing you there!

Following comprehensive consultation with staff, learners, parents/carers, local schools and other stakeholders in our community, our Governors have given permission to make adjustments to our school day.

Closed to learners on 30th June 2017

A reminder to parents/carers that we are closed to students on Friday 30th June for a Staff Training Day

The Future of the Kenton Schools Academy Trust

An important decision about the future for Kenton School and Studio West has been made and our Chief Executive, Mr Pearmain, has written to all parents/carers to explain the situation.

Mr Pearmain is due to retire at the end of the summer term and has been working hard with trustees to look at the best options for the future development of both our schools.

Working with Mrs Wigham and Mrs Holmes-Carne, the Trust has determined that to secure a great new future, it is our intention for both schools to become part of the Laidlaw Schools Trust (LST).

Your views as parents and guardians are important to us. You are invited to meet with me and senior representatives from the Laidlaw Schools Trust at Kenton School on Wednesday June 28th at 6.30pm, to learn more about the proposals and what they could mean. We will answer any questions you have. If you intend to come to the meeting, it would be helpful if you could call us on 0191 214 2200 to confirm.

Fostering & Adoption

Fostering is a way of providing safety and stability to a vulnerable child when they most need it.

If you have a spare room as well as the time and energy to support a child, you could foster.

Road Safety

The roads around our school are very busy and during the winter months when mornings and evenings are darker, everyone should be taking extra care when using the roads.
