Kenilworth School

Kenilworth School & Sixth Form Relocation Project


We are embarking on an exciting project to relocate our current Kenilworth School at Leyes Lane and Sixth Form at Rouncil Lane.

We are proposing a new, purpose built secondary school and sixth form offering improved teaching, learning and sports facilities at Southcrest Farm, Glasshouse Lane, Kenilworth (see Site Location plan).

Kenilworth School and Sixth Form is recognised as a ‘World Class School’ and Centre of Excellence for Inclusion. It is committed to delivering the best possible secondary education for the current and future young people of Kenilworth. The new facilities will enable the school to increase capacity providing places for 2,200 pupils.


Message from hayden abbott (Head Teacher)

“We are very excited to see our new school beginning to take shape on site and everyone is working collaboratively towards our planned move into the new school in 2023.

I want to thank our partners, trustees, advisors and other stakeholders who have supported the KMAT in reaching this substantial milestone in the project”

I am immensely proud to put the first shovel in the ground at our new school site which achieved planning in 2019. Main construction works commenced in May 2021 , following ecology protection measures being put in place to protect the biodiversity on our new site.
