Kensington Primary Academy opened in September 2016 with one Reception class of 30 children and in September 2017 we opened our first nursery within the Trust.
The schools have developed our own, distinct knowledge-rich curriculum: The Primary Knowledge Curriculum, a carefully sequenced, knowledge-rich programme which inspires pupils, promotes excellent outcomes for all and is underpinned by a drive to overcome inequality of opportunity.

Kensington Primary Academy is part of the Knowledge Schools Trust.
