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). 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 and sports enrichments.
Kensington Aldridge Academy is now fully open. The Intrepidus Trust continues to fundraise to meet the costs of educational enrichments that unlock opportunities and experiences for all, including the most vulnerable students.
Over the Summer holidays, donations to the Trust funded a series of day camps providing opportunities for our students to reconnect with their teachers and peers, and participate in sports, arts, well-being and academic activities.
The Evening Standard reported on our students’ excitement at returning to school.
Help us bring opportunities for future generations of KAA pupils by contributing to our Endowment Fund Appeal. With your help we can reach our ambitious £2 million target!
We are delighted to be participating in The Big Give Christmas Challenge, the UK’s biggest match funding campaign.
Between 1st – 8th December, all donations to the KAA Intrepidus Trust made via the Christmas Challenge campaign will be doubled!
