Mr Simon Day

Chair of Governors

“I am delighted to have been appointed as a Governor to Kentmere Academy.  My daughter, Miss Day currently is a teacher in the school and it is through her that I have come to know much of the impressive work which goes on daily, in and beyond the classrooms. 

I have extensive experience in Primary Education, as a classroom teacher, mentor, subject leader and in the role of head teacher of 2 primary schools. I believe this experience will enable me to make a valuable and meaningful contribution to the Governing Body and the school in general.  Kentmere is a vibrant and happy community and the children never fail to impress me with their enthusiasm and willingness to learn. I look forward to becoming more closely involved in the school’s journey, as it continues to ‘Soar to Success.’”

Kentmere Academy Headteacher

“Kentmere Academy has come a long way since its conversion to Academy status in 2015. The academy has not been without challenges and there has been much hard work in order to get to where the school is today.

The hard work has paid off and I am delighted to announce that the SATS exams this year were the best results that Kentmere Academy has ever achieved. The combined national averages for the Key Stage 2 SATs this year was 52%. Kentmere Academy achieved 91%! This is an outstanding achievement for the school, staff and most importantly, the children.

A big thank you to everyone who has supported the school over the past two years. These results show that the hard work is paying off and that Kentmere Academy is achieving to its full potential.

As Headteacher of Kentmere Academy, I am very proud of the outstanding progress we have made in what is relatively a short period of time, and I am looking forward to our school’s exciting future.”
