As one our visiting teachers said:

“I visited Kentwell when I was nine and that visit made such a huge impression on me that I decided then to study history and become a teacher. The memory of that visit has stayed with me ever since. Today when visiting the bakery on the teacher’s tour, the smell and sights took me back to that time visiting as a schoolboy, and for a moment I became nine again. Thank you.”
