Life at KAA

Kensington Aldridge Academy boasts excellent facilities and first rate teaching staff. We are absolutely committed to allowing every pupil to achieve their potential; specialised help will be available for Oxbridge, Russell Group and Medical School applications, as well as the full range of other higher education options, including vocational routes. There will be a full programme of enrichment activities, including clubs, sports, music, drama, a lecture series, competitions and school visits. We also expect our Sixth Formers to be leaders; our students will have the opportunity to lead (or found) school clubs and activities, mentor younger pupils and take an active role in the community.

Facilities

_JWT7220As well as the state-of-the-art theatre, the roof-top Astroturf pitch, the sports hall and the dance and drama studios, our Sixth Formers will have their own study areas, common room and library. Being on the same site as the new Kensington leisure centre, our pupils are just seconds away from full gym and swimming facilities. There are also excellent new facilities for Art, Design, Food Technology, music practice and a professional recording studio, as well as the full range of science labs and other classrooms.

Partnerships

NCS press picWe also benefit from unique partnerships; you have probably read about our links with two of the country’s leading independent schools, Godolphin and Latymer and Charterhouse. In addition, we have the National Citizenship Service (NCS) http://www.ncsyes.co.uk/ within our building; this will lead to a bespoke experience for KAA Sixth Formers on a package designed by NCS specifically for pupils from KAA, Godolphin and Charterhouse. Further opportunities will be provided by our links with the Royal Academy of Dance and the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art. Through these partnerships, we intend to get the best possible opportunities for our students, including access to some of the best advice available on UCAS and university entrance.
