“Thought breeds thought; children familiar with great thoughts take as naturally to thinking for themselves as the well-nourished body takes to growing; and we must bear in mind that growth; physical, intellectual, moral, spiritual, is the sole end of education.”

Charlotte M. Mason

Welcome to Ambleside
Primary School of Kensington

Ambleside Primary School of Kensington is a Christ centered school that is based on the thought and practice of British author, philosopher and teacher, Charlotte Mason (1842 -1923).

The school has been founded to provide a ‘living education’ for the children of Kensington and surrounding areas.

A living education cultivates a love to learn, to live lives caring for others, while interacting with the best literature, the greatest works of art and music and creation.
