The organisations who will manager the schools at Kents Hill Park have been appointed, and it’s good news: they both run outstanding schools locally at present.
The SEN unit will function as an extra campus of the existing Slated Row school.
The primary and secondary schools will be run as one all-through school, but taking in extra children at each stage, by the Kingsbridge Educational Trust, who run Oakgrove at present.
Kingsbridge are consulting on the admissions arrangements for their school now, and you can have your say. The details are on their website at www.kentshillpark.school and the consultation closes on Wednesday 29th November at 5pm.
Basically, they are proposing that:
- the infant school will be sized for, and have catchment of, Kents Hill Park only.
- The junior school will have the same catchment as Heronsgate School – Kents Hill and Kents Hill Park homes will be most of the closest ones giving them priority. Children who attend the infant school will have an automatic junior place.
- The secondary school will have a catchment to the west of our area, plus Kents Hill Park, but not the rest of our area. Children who attend the junior school will have an automatic secondary school place.
Please respond to the consultation and also let us know what you think. Thank you.
