Day pupils at Kingham Hill

Kingham Hill School is a small, friendly day and boarding school in Oxfordshire renowned for its strong sense of community.

Our day pupils are a key part of the school family, and both they and our boarding pupils integrate seamlessly across school life, sharing lessons, activities and sports together.

Our Day Houses

The day houses provide a base for the pupils during the school day. They register with their Houseparent every morning before heading to Chapel or tutor time.

The houses all have kitchen areas where pupils can make snacks during the day, as well as lockers to store their belongings. There are dedicated areas for relaxing and playing games during lunch and break times.

The Houseparent leads and manages the house, and are the first point of contact for parents who may have questions or need advice. They are assisted by a Deputy Houseparent and tutors who add an additional layer of support to ensure the pupils always have someone on hand to provide guidance and help if required.

There is a five day teaching week, with day pupils arriving at school by 8.25am and the day ends at 4.40pm. Buses leave school at 5.15pm. Pupils are welcome to stay until 6.00pm in the school library if they wish to complete their ‘prep’ (homework) before they go home.

Day pupils really benefit from being in a boarding school environment as life at Kingham Hill doesn’t stop at the end of the school day. Pupils can choose to take part in evening activities such as the Performing Arts Academy if they so wish. The school can also provide ad-hoc overnight stays which can be helpful to support busy parents; these can be booked in advance with the School Registrar.
