Word From The Head

From Pete Last Headmaster

Friendly, happy pupils

The best advertisements for a school are its children, 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 pupils made on them when visiting us.

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.

Fulfilling pupils' potential

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