HRH Prince Charles Visits Kensington Aldridge Academy

Date: February 13th 2019

HRH Prince Charles visited Kensington Aldridge academy today, taking the opportunity to meet students, staff and representatives of organisations who have supported the school since its opening in 2014.

The Academy is recognised as one of the top in the UK and in 2017 Ofsted graded the school “outstanding”.

It has subsequently gone on to win both London-wide and national awards, recognising both its achievements and the school’s resilience and determination to support its students after the tragic fire that took place at Grenfell Tower nearby.


The Prince was shown round the Academy by Principal, Dave Benson, and watched lessons  before seeing the choir perform, and an A-Level dance piece. Representatives from TeachFirst joined the visit alongside Sir Rod Aldridge and Aldridge Education Interim CEO Richard Bassett.

Sir Rod said: “HRH The Prince of Wales’ visit is further recognition for the achievements of Kensington Aldridge Academy and everyone who has supported our young people in the past year. I am immensely proud of the academy’s students, staff, governing body and the Trust Team that works with our schools.”
