Our aim is to become an outstanding school and a centre of excellence in teaching and learning, both within the borough of Kensington and beyond. Our teachers are given the time, training and management they need to become the best in their fields.
We have capitalised on the rare opportunity of creating a new school to design a first rate curriculum that prepares students for the demands of the new, strengthened national examination system. This means students at the academy receive a consistent diet of outstanding lessons – the ‘deal’ they get with us is second to none.
