Comment's about Kingston Park Primary School ~

“I made some amazing friends at Kingston Park and I still keep in touch with most of them today. School trips were great. The Christmas Productions and the summer musicals are my most memorable moments along with sports days in the summer."

 

"Kingston Park prepared me for life at secondary school with a good foundation for tackling life. The teachers were fantastic and helped with the transition to secondary school.”

 

Christopher's experience of Kenton School ~

“Kenton really does provide the education, life skills and learning experiences needed to leave school prepared for either further education or employment.

 

There were more people than at KPPS but with this came exposure to a better range of activities be it physical education, music, information technology or extracurricular activities. The teachers and support staff ran so many after school clubs that the pupils could always try something new.

 

There are many inspirational teachers at Kenton. My personal inspirations were from my Maths teacher, Chemistry teacher and French teacher.”
