Welcome To Kestrel Mead Primary Academy

Welcome to our school website. Kestrel Mead is situated in the growing area of Hamilton on the outskirts of Leicester City. We are a vibrant, caring and aspirational primary school catering for children between the ages of three and eleven. We are proud to be a school across 2 sites, but are firmly one school. The infant site caters for children from Nursery to Year 2 and our Junior building serves our Year 3-6 children. We welcome visits to the school; for prospective pupils, interested parents and professionals who would like to see our pedagogy and curriculum offer in practice. We are very active on Twitter, so be sure to click on one of the tweets below to see the daily photos and updates that we provide.

Following a very difficult year due to COVID 19, we are proud of the way that our school community have pulled together. More than ever we realise that we are a wonderful team here at Kestrel Mead. This year we were proud to be part of the TMET Big Christmas Community Hug. We were astonished to load 3 minibuses full of donations for Help the Homeless Leicester. See the link to our YouTube channel where you can watch our school Christmas song based on the idea of giving with some school photos of our wonderful children giving to others.

We are also aware that we have not been able to show off our exciting school to prospective parents, so the teachers have worked hard to give you a flavour of learning in classrooms across the 2 school sites. I love this video as it captures the children’s curiosity, team work and deep desire to learn in all classes.
