A current parent perspective on the UK's top schools


INSIDE SCOOP Kensington Park School 59 Queen Anne’s Gate, London, SW7 5JP Admissions: 0207 225 0577 • Day/Full 11-18 GL The Inside Scoop from a current parent… Kensington Park School is a truly special and relatively small school where every child genuinely knows every other child and teacher in a very personal way, creating a wonderful ‘family’. It boasts some of the country’s most experienced teachers and offers excellent cultural and sporting opportunities, all in the heart of London. Our child came from a large school where he would tend to hide at the back of the classroom and rarely contribute. Within weeks of joining KPS, he was actively participating, sharing his ideas and most impressive of all, coming home at the end of day with real enthusiasm about what he had learned at school. The difference is palpable, his confidence continues to grow and he is happy about school every day. As parents, we love: The relationships the children build with their teachers and other students. The communication with parents through the parent portal is amazing. We feel truly involved. The neighbourhood feel of the school. It’s a joy to be able to walk to school. Our children love: Getting to know their teachers both in and out of the classroom. There’s a great atmosphere! The variety of clubs and amazing school trips. Being so close to Hyde Park. HEADS UP “KPS is a local, academically selective school that aims to give each student the framework they need to achieve their best, not just now but in years to come. As a small school, we really tailor what we offer to the needs of our students.” Paul Vanni, Headmaster Open Evenings: 11+ and 13+ entry: 7th May 2019, 3rd June 2019 - 16+ entry: 5th June 2019. 48 Read the full review on ★ 2019
