The best advertisements for a school are its pupils, and if you ask current parents why they chose Kingham Hill for their son or daughter, they invariably speak of the impression that friendly, happy, and well-balanced characters made on them when visiting us.

As Headmaster, I am personally committed to the Christian ethos of Kingham Hill, and I feel very privileged to lead a school with such a rich past and an exciting future. We pride ourselves on our commitment to the individual. Every pupil is valued and encouraged to develop their own character and talents to the full. Confidence and maturity are nurtured by experienced academic and pastoral staff, in an atmosphere of opportunity and enquiry, with excellent structures of care in a stunning country setting.

Helping every pupil fulfil their academic potential has been a hallmark of our school for many years, and progress and success are fundamental to what we do. Education is, however, about so much more than qualifications, important though they are. The wide range of experiences and extra-curricular provision on offer, in sport, music, drama and elsewhere, combined with our fine facilities, make for cheerful and self disciplined pupils who have an appetite for discovery, and an ambition to make their mark.

We welcome talented pupils from a wide range of backgrounds and circumstances, and aim to produce young people of vision, faith and character, who are well-qualified and equipped to flourish in their adult lives.

I'm delighted by your interest in our school. The best way to understand us is however, to visit Kingham Hill on a working day and to see for yourself. Please don't hesitate to contact us to arrange an appointment.
