My Life at Saint Kentigern

  • "Whether you are in Yr 7 on your first day or in Yr 13 studying in the common room, Saint Kentigern has plenty to offer. Whether it be on the sports field, in the classroom or on the drama stage. Throughout my 7 years here, Saint Kentigern has supported me and helped me both in and outside the classroom. It has and will continue to be an important part of my life. Fides Servanda Est" – Sam, Year 13
  • “Having been at this college for the past 3 years, I now feel deeply imbedded into the Saint Kentigern community. Being a boarder, as well as getting involved with some of the countless co-curricular activities that this school offers, has worked to amplify this. People here really do care for you. The teachers, the students and all of the staff are always supporting each other, providing platforms for a huge range of people to excel in anything and everything that interests them. The diversity and the talent seen at this school is both inspiring and remarkable. I have made friendships that will stay with me forever and I know Saint Kentigern will continue to support me and be a part of who I am long into the future. This is an incredible school and no matter who you are or where you’re from there is a place here for you” – Hannah, Year 13
  • “Saint Kentigern College to me is more than just a ‘school’ of which you spend 5 days a week and an average of 6 hours a day at. I see Saint Kentigern College as much more than that, it is a community, a melting pot of individuals, from all walks of life, an area of common ground. The calibre of opportunities, support and pastoral care provided here at Saint Kentigern College is excellent. I can honestly say that I have ceased to experience an educational institution as superior. Is that to say this school is flawless? No, no school is, but it strives to be, and that is the thing that makes it beautiful. To be a student at Saint Kentigern is to be more than just a number. To be a student here, is to be a contributing member of something much larger than yourself, to be a contributor of what God had gifted to you, and to utilize the skills and strengths that He gave you with confidence. I have no doubt that this school, my school, has helped mould me into the person I am today. And for that I am grateful” - Liam, Year 13
