The Grenfell fire hit Kensington Aldridge Academy hard, and the KAA Intrepidus Trust (KIT) has been working alongside the school in the aftermath to support staff and students through this period and beyond.
Set up in November 2017 by a group of the school’s governors, KIT’s mission is to broaden the horizons of the 1,200 pupils of Kensington Aldridge Academy (KAA), 68% of whom are identified by the government as the most disadvantaged; double the national average. We aim to provide our pupils with opportunities which equal the best that can be found anywhere in the country, through the delivery of an ambitious programme of performing & creative arts, life-skills, academic and sports enrichments.
On Tuesday 21st May we hosted a fundraising auction in the dining hall at Kensington Aldridge Academy, with the theme ‘School Dinner with a Difference’. Through the generosity of our donors, both on the night and through donated auction prizes and services, we were delighted to raise over £300,000 towards our endowment fund. We cannot thank you enough for your ongoing support.
Help us bring opportunities for future generations of KAA pupils through our newly launched Endowment Fund. With your help we can reach our ambitious £2 million target by December 2019!
**All donations matched up to a total £500,000**
Some very good reasons to support our work.
