Education is both a personal and a collective journey of development, self-discovery and ambition. At Kingshott we welcome every child’s unique character and approach to learning. There is no ‘one size fits all’ education. Our teachers and wider staff see all our pupils as individuals each with their own unique experiences and personalities to offer. At the core of every decision we make, lies pupil development and happiness. We aim for all our children to be confident, secure and relaxed whilst ambitious for both their own development and that of their peers, too.

I have always enjoyed Marcel Proust’s statement, “The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeing new sights, but in looking with new eyes.” Being an independent school affords us the freedom to choose our own path to academic excellence. The small class sizes and high teacher-to-pupil ratio ensures that each child’s progress is tracked and supported through every step of their education with us.

Our modern facilities, set within 23 acres on the edge of Hitchin, inspire the staff and children alike to strive for the best. Our emphasis on a rounded education ensures our children experience the very best teaching available, whether it be through the academic subjects or our broad and comprehensive curriculum. Our Sports Hall is regularly converted into a theatre to enable whole school productions – most recently a 400 strong cast of ‘The Lion King’.

We are proud of the excellent academic and pastoral grounding we provide our pupils during their time as members of our community and always relish hearing how they continue to progress at their chosen Senior Schools. This passion remains a driving force in the school’s dedication to being the first choice of schooling for your child. You are welcome at any time to visit, please just contact our Admissions Office and I look forward to meeting you.
