Kenton College Preparatory School offers some of the best facilities available in Kenya. The school is organised into two parts, Junior School (Y2-4) and Senior School (5-8). The Junior classrooms are situated at one end of the school and children stay in their classrooms for the majority of their subjects, taught by their class teacher. However, they do leave the classroom to go to ICT and Computing, Physical Education, Art, Music and Science. When a child reaches Senior school they will have different subject teachers and move between lessons according to their timetable.
As well as large amount of subject specific academic classrooms, all resourced with ultra modern interactive LED panels or Interactive Whiteboards and projectors, the school has 3 Science labs (1 Junior, 2 Senior) and 2 ICT and Computing labs. We have a fully working Library stocked modern releases as well as classics.
Art and Design and Technology
The school has 3 Art rooms (1 Junior 2 Senior) to support our vibrant and creative Art Department. The school also has a specialist Design Technology room complete with work benches, machines and a wide range of tools.
The Davies Music Gallery is a resource we are very proud of. It has a beautiful teaching space as well as numerous practice rooms where pupils have one to one tuition on the instrument of their choice.
As well as having a specific classroom dedicated to the teaching of Drama, Kenton has an impressive stage complete with full theatre lighting and sound system. Class assemblies regularly take place on the stage as well as two major performance a year.
Physical Education and Sports
At Kenton, we are very proud of our sports facilities. Our beautiful 8 lane 25m Swimming Pool and full size synthetic grass pitch are used and enjoyed by pupils on a daily basis. In addition to these state of the art facilities we have grounds enough for numerous rugby, rounders, cricket, netball, hockey and football pitches. Click on the gallery below to see more.
The library is a place where the children and staff of Kenton College can read, study, browse, fact-find, relax and research. It also accommodates children who need a quiet place to do their prep.
Our aim is to develop in the children a love of books and to encourage reading, which will, in turn, improve literacy skills including the skills needed to do research.
The library works on the Dewey Decimal System which is used world-wide so children leave Kenton equipped to use similar library facilities elsewhere
