Inspection Reports

Kingham Hill School '... is a supportive community of pupils and teachers treating each other with respect and kindness in this area of outstanding natural beauty'The Good Schools Guide, 2017

Kingham Hill School offers a high quality education in a welcoming community, and this has been recognised in our many inspection reports and also by Good Schools Guide who recommend us as one of their approved schools.

Our latest inspection reports from both the Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI) and the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC) 2015 are testament that we are delivering on our mission. The ISI particularly noted when commenting on the curriculum & extra-curricular provision at the School that "It is consistent with the school's aims to provide a rounded education so that pupils are well equipped to flourish in their adult lives and it makes an effective contribution to pupils' achievement."

You will note that in our most recent ISI compliance inspection, KHS was found to compliant in all areas, with the single exception related to the ability of boarders with ‘time-zone’ issues to phone home, which can be impractical in the evening. This was a consequence of our ICT strategy and usage policy, which was implemented to help meet safeguarding obligations, and to promote an atmosphere supporting pupils’ wellbeing and academic culture. In order to maintain these aims whilst addressing the concerns of ISI, KHS has implemented some practical amendments. If you would like further information about this, please do not hesitate to be in touch.

CReSTeD have recently inspected the School and another very pleasing report was forthcoming, confirming the school’s registration as having a high quality and officially approved Dyslexic Unit.
