"Learners are safe, well behaved and proud of their school and report that bullying is not a problem"

- Ofsted (2016)

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 who 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.
