The primary phase at KAB (2 FE), and KAO, a brand new 1 FE primary school a mile away, open in September 2019 with nursery and YR in KAB and YR, 1 and 2 in KAO. They will also then grow year on year. KAO will be run as an intrinsic part of KAB with both schools sharing the same values, curriculum, opportunities and expectations of excellence.
