Our primary objective is that all boys are happy within an environment which is relaxed but purposeful. Academic work is the ‘core business’ of School life, but we are also keen to fulfil the potential of our boys in co-curricular activities.
e pride ourselves on our community and the House Spirit, where Shell boys mingle comfortably with all other year groups and vice versa. We have senior mentors for all Shell boys, academic shepherds and vertical pastoral groups comprising a boy in each year group. This enables us to exist as one House Community, supporting each other all the way. We feel that our ethos, where older boys help the younger pupils navigate School life, is something that really characterises Kendall as a House.
We put a high value on effort, and pride ourselves on our academic work, music, drama, sport, art, CCF, debating and many other areas. We enjoy the fun and challenge of inter-House competitions and have had many successes in this area. From Kendall, we have produced a GB rower who competed at the Rio Olympics, and a Cricketer who was one of the fastest bowlers in the country at U18, playing for Hampshire CC. Equally celebrated are those pupils who start their own band, complete their Gold D of E or write for pupil magazines. Many excellent musicians are key members of the various school music ensembles, and several boys have been involved in school productions as varied as Hamlet, Fame and West Side Story.
