We are a busy, friendly Church of England school, with a lot going on. This website aims to give you a taster of the school, as well as providing up to date information for parents, pupils and the wider community.

We hope that you enjoy your visit to our website, and that you find the information you are looking for. Please feel free to contact the school direct with any queries you may have.

Our School Vision and Values.

Kennington CE Academy is a Church of England school. We are an inclusive community where Christian Vision and Values empower us. We work with pride and passion to create life-long learners who fulfil their potential as God intended. If we work together, we will be the very best that we can be; achieving, celebrating and succeeding whilst having fun.

‘Everyone who uses what he has will get more. He will have much more than he needs. But the one who does not use what he has will have everything taken away from him.’ Parable of the Talents. (Matthew 25:14- 30)

The original school building was built in 1872 and this building still exists as a school office. In the 1950s nine classrooms were added. A hall and three further classrooms were added in 2000.

We now have 12 classes of up to 90 children in each year group. 

We are well supported by our PTFA who raise a lot of funds that enables us to enhance the learning for our children.

We work closely with Downs View Infant school and have strong transitions from Year 2 to Year 3 which welcomes everyone on board. See link below for information on Downs View.

Our local church is St Mary’s Church which the children can see from the playground. This amazing 600 year old church has a bustling community which we are proud to be part of.

Kennington Community Forum supports peoples views on the schools, church and other aspects of the community. For further information please click the link below.

When children leave Year 6 they mostly attend The Towers School or one of the local grammar schools.
