Welcome to Kenton Primary School

Our small, rural school sits in the heart of a thriving village, with the amazing Powderham Castle taking pride of place. There is a lovely family feel here, and our hard working and dedicated staff join together to provide the best possible outcomes for all children.

Due to an unfortunate flood affecting Kenton Primary School, we are currently located at Hope Church in Dawlish. If you need to contact us, we are taking calls on 01626 890465 or email us at admin@kentonschool.co.uk .
