It is my great pleasure to welcome you to the Kendrick School website and to our alumnae section. As a former Kendrick student we hope that you may be interested in how your ‘old’ school has developed, what is new and what is possibly just the same as when you were here! There is of course much that has changed over the years: the staff, the buildings, possibly the subjects we teach and how we teach them and much more. However, there is much that has remained the same and that is the unique Kendrick community and Kendrick spirit that everyone who has ever been a part of Kendrick knows and understands.
We remain an 11-18 selective girls’ school. As a specialist school in the 2000s we developed our strengths in Science, Mathematics and Languages. We have always shared our good practice and continue to do so by working with other schools, both secondary and primary schools in the local area. We entered into a soft federation with Reading Girls’ School in 2007 and we still maintain a close connection with RGS and a number of their students join our 6th form. In February 2011 Kendrick became an Academy.
In the last ten years we have developed a very active and influential Head Girl Team who lead the student body in developing initiatives, arranging activities mainly based around our House System which was introduced in 2007.
As a former student of Kendrick School we would like you to reconnect with your school, find out what we are doing and if possible come back and visit us. We have a Birthday event every year when we invite former girls and staff to revisit their school, look round the buildings and find out about what we are doing and what our plans are for the future.
As the Headteacher of Kendrick, my vision is to lead, inspire and make a difference to the lives of girls and young women. I believe passionately in girls’ education and know that Kendrick School has and always will provide its students with the very best education there is. I am sure many of you who may be reading this will feel privileged and proud of your association with Kendrick and so I invite you to join our alumnae association and be reminded of the importance of your early schooling as I am sure that a part of you is and will always be a Kendrick girl. Welcome back!
Ms Christine Kattirtzi
