“We are sorry but like others, we can make mistakes. Unfortunately we used the word “double” in the passage above to describe the extent of the expansion of Keston Church of England Primary School. This description is incorrect and as soon as we were alerted to the error, we replaced the word “double” with the word “increase”. KVRA always seek to act with integrity and we would never knowingly publish incorrect information. Please accept our apologies if you were unintentionally misled.
