Thank you so much to The Friends for making our children stand out in the crowd at our sporting events!  The children are thrilled to have these new tops. We are very proud of our sporting achievements at Kennet Valley School and have developed a good reputation over recent years for success at tournaments, our determination and team sprit. We enjoy training hard for these events in PE on the field at Kennet Valley Hall and at our after school clubs. We are most grateful to our volunteer helpers, coaches and parents for all the support they give us.

Restoration of the school bell

It was with great excitement that the school bell started ringing again in September 2017 to mark the beginning of the school day at 0855. The restoration was largely funded through the Diocese and we are very grateful for this. Maria our Rector came to lead our school collective worship and to bless the bell for us. The bell dates back to Victorian times and the villagers tell us they welcome the sound again as it’s rings out across the village too! Maria explained that the bell symbolises our strong school connection with the Church, our Christian beliefs and values, as it marks the beginning of our day coming together to play, learn, pray and worship.
