About Kempston Academy

Kempston Challenger Academy is based in Kempston, Bedford and we are very proud that we serve the local community.  Our vision is to create a school that everyone is proud of and one which inspires individuals, enables success and provides opportunities for all.

Our core aim is to provide students with a wide variety of opportunities both inside and outside of the classroom. The acquisition of as many skills and experiences as possible whilst at Kempston Challenger Academy allows students to take charge of their own destinies. The school’s ambitions and expectations for all its students are the same, regardless of background, prior achievements or ambition – we will challenge, support and develop all our students to excel. 

As well as the focus on academic studies, we continue to offer our exciting and innovative addition to our curriculum; Challenger Diploma.  It offers students the opportunity to develop their skills and talents beyond the classroom.  Our aim is that every student achieves a Challenger Diploma award at either bronze, silver or gold level throughout the academic year.  A wide variety of activities will be offered for every student, striving for each individual to develop their skills and attributes under the Challenge, Motivation, Ambition and Team categories (CMAT).  The school offers a wide variety of extra-curricular opportunities ranging from competitive sports fixtures, recreational sports clubs, drama productions, an award winning cheerleading squad, STEM events, to name but a few. 

Our students flourish due to the encouragement we all give as an energetic and caring school community with high expectations.  Our strength is to provide exceptional opportunities to succeed through a modern and effective curriculum and a first class team of teachers and other professional staff.

This ambition has seen KCA rapidly improve year on year, and has culminated in not only improved results, behaviour and attendance, but in the school gaining the OFSTED rating of GOOD in 2018.

Our aim is to instil in all our students the belief to ‘know they can achieve as this is the first step to success. We expect students to ‘commit to caring,’ about themselves, their future and others and we will always encourage them to ‘aspire to achieve their goals and aim higher.’
