A message from the Principal

“Kenton is a successful school with a fine reputation.”

I feel hugely privileged to lead Kenton School and, if you choose for your child to attend Kenton School, I would wish to work with you to ensure your child receives an outstanding education.

You know how important your choice of secondary school is for your child’s success. Our ideal starting point is that every pupil comes from a family which has positively chosen Kenton, because both child and family will start with commitment and confidence.

Keeping Children Safe in Education

As a school, we strictly follow the statutory guidance for schools and colleges on safeguarding children and safer recruitment.
