Please note. Kentmere Primary converted to Kentmere Academy in February 2015. Since then, the school has dramatically changed its image and improved its standards to become one of the leading primary schools in Rochdale. Our most recent exam results justify this statement. As an academy, Kentmere Academy is legally a different school to Kentmere Primary and therefore past Ofsted inspections do not count, the school has now received it’s first official Ofsted inspection (January 2018) and has been graded as Ofsted ‘Outstanding’. We are incredibly proud of our inspection outcome.

If you would like to learn more about how Kentmere Academy and how it has raised its standards then we encourage you to come and see the school - every day is an open day! You can also arrange a meeting with our Headteacher to learn more about how Kentmere Academy can benefit your child.
