Getting to Kingham Hill

Kingham Hill is located in the heart of the Cotswolds, between Oxford, Cheltenham and Stratford-Upon-Avon and just 80 minutes by direct train from London Paddington (an hour and half by road from London Heathrow). The school lies just a short walk from Kingham, voted ‘England’s favourite village’. Chipping Norton, a traditional Cotswold market town, is four miles away.

Travelling by car

Sat Nav or internet directions that go via Hastings Hill in Churchill are misleading, as this is a private road and a card operated security barrier prevents access to School grounds.

From the North: Take the A44 from Moreton-in-Marsh to Chipping Norton. At the Greedy Goose pub turn right on to the A436 towards Stow-on-the-Wold and after 1 mile take the 2nd left, signposted Kingham Hill School. Take this road through the trees for half a mile, go straight across at the crossroads (towards Kingham) and the School is half a mile up the hill on the left. From East: Take the A44 from Chipping Norton to Moreton-in-Marsh. At the Greedy Goose pub turn left on to the A436 towards Stow-on-the-Wold. After 1 mile take the 2nd left, signposted Kingham Hill School. Take this road through the trees for half a mile, go straight across at the crossroads (towards Kingham) and the School is half a mile up the hill on the left.

From the South: Take the A361 from Burford to Chipping Norton. 6 miles out of Burford take the left turn signposted Kingham. After 2.4 miles there is a T- junction; turn left towards Kingham (B4450). Take the first right turn to Kingham, and follow the road right through the village, past the village green, then straight on and up the hill. The School is situated one mile beyond the village, near the top of the hill on the right. From West: Take the A436 from Stow-on-the-Wold to Chipping Norton. After 3 miles go over the railway bridge near Adlestrop, and ignore the right turn to Daylesford and Kingham, instead continuing for another mile up the hill, and take the right fork marked Cornwell. Go 0.8 miles along the road bordered by trees and dry stone walls. At the first crossroads turn right towards Kingham. The School is half a mile up the hill on the left.
