Ethos

The ethos at Kingham Hill School is that it is all pupils participate in sport so they can build their personal fitness, enjoy and participate in a range of sports, and develop a lifelong desire to maintain a healthy lifestyle.The school uses the excellent sporting facilities to the full and offers a range of team and individual sports.

Sport is a vital part of the school curriculum as it promotes the health and wellbeing of pupils, but it also provides an opportunity to develop and practise personal qualities vital for a successful life; such as confidence, discipline, teamwork, leadership skills and resilience.

There is a full programme of sporting fixtures throughout the year, including the competitively fought inter-house competitions,sports dayand weekly inter-school fixtures.One of the many benefits of being in a small school is that the majority of pupils will be able to represent the school in a sporting capacity.
