Kensington Aldridge Academy has returned to its original site on Silchester Road in time for the new academic year starting September 2018 after relocating to a temporary site in the aftermath of the Grenfell Tower tragedy. You can read about the school’s return to Silchester Road in issue #39 of Grenfell Support here.
Getting to Kensington Aldridge Academy
The majority of students still walk into school. There are additional buses on the number 7 bus route before and after the school day.
The Council is also providing a shuttlebus to the new site. The shuttlebus is available to any student of KAA whose journey to school has been significantly disrupted by the relocation of the school premises. Students who wish to use the bus need to book it in advance and commit to using it both ways every day (i.e. both in the morning and after school). The shuttlebus leaves from Freston Road at 8.15am each morning and departs from the school at 4.30pm each afternoon. If you would like to book a place on the shuttlebus please call Care for Grenfell on 020 7745 6414 or speak to your Keyworker.
