Welcome to Kenton School

A message from our Principal

I am delighted to be able to address all prospective parents as you make choices about your child’s secondary school. 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. Kenton remains a hugely popular choice with our parents.

Year 7 for September 2020 is once again oversubscribed, and we have a lengthy waiting list.

The Post 16 provision continues to increase on exceptional results and destinations: both University and L3 apprenticeships​

GCSE predictions for this current Year 11 demonstrate the performance table statistics are set to rise again; with the class of 2021 on course for the best results ever. 

 

There is much to celebrate at Kenton School and this prospectus will offer you a unique insight into the many changes and improvements we have made.

 

We hope it acts as a guide to enable you to ask the questions of the staff you find most pressing.

 

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.

S Holmes-Carne, Principal
