Kenton primary school celebrates double whammy
Mount Stewart receives outstanding Ofsted results in its 60th anniversary year
A primary school in Kenton has double reason for celebration after being rated as ‘outstanding’ for the first time in what is its 60th anniversary year.
Mount Stewart Junior School was lauded for its ‘tremendous efforts’ and ‘inspiring environment’ in a recent report compiled by school standards body Ofsted.
The school, in Mount Stewart Avenue, was awarded a ‘good’ status in 2008, but the latest rating is its highest since it was set up in 1952.
Bindu Rai, the school’s head teacher, said: “The school’s motto is ‘Life-long learners reach great heights’ – it reflects the high ambitions that the school community has for themselves.

During the inspection pupils spoke highly of the construction of a Year six teaching block and a soon to be completed outdoor learning area in the form of an amphitheatre.
