School profile

Kennet School

‘Excellence Through Endeavour', our school motto, perfectly communicates our belief that through hard work and determination every pupil is able to achieve things they didn’t think were possible.

Supported by the exceptionally high results achieved at both GCSE and A Level, we enable our pupils to exceed expectation in every aspect of their life and flourish as confident individuals.

We are a truly inclusive school. We have a fully staffed physical disability resource and hearing impaired resource that enables pupils from West Berkshire and surrounding counties to be part of the Kennet community.

We are relentlessly ambitious for our pupils who thrive through our mantra of high expectations, hard work, respect for themselves and each other, and personal aspiration to improve the world around them.

About our school experience

Whilst you are at Kennet for the day you will spend time in your chosen subject area. You will observe a range of lessons at Key Stage 3 and 4. You will also meet the department and find out about their curriculum. You will also have the chance to take a tour around the school and see the school site from the pupils' perspective. In addition, you will also have the chance to meet with the ITTCo or Deputy Head in charge of ITE to ask questions about the support you will receive by both the university provider and Kennet School.
