• The Award for Primary School of the Year - Making a Difference
  • Kentmere Academy and Nursery
  • Rochdale, Greater Manchester

Kentmere Academy has experienced a unique and inspirational journey of improvement. Less than five years ago, the school was amongst the worst performing in Greater Manchester and OFSTED placed it in Special Measures. Today they celebrate being rated Outstanding! An extraordinary team of staff and governors have worked in complete unity towards a shared goal – to give the children the education they deserve, in the most challenging of circumstances. Post-Ofsted, Kentmere Academy still maintains the momentum and relentless drive for raising expectations.
