What Makes Kingham Hill Special

The perfect location

The peace and quiet of the glorious Cotswold countryside is the perfect environment in which to study, relax and be active, and in our rural, 100 acre bubble, we have plenty of space - and places - for all those things. With Kingham station on our doorstep, Oxford, Worcester and Evesham are short train rides away, with London Paddington just 90 minutes direct. The school operates a bus service to and from the station, as well as from several locations around the county, making it easy for pupils to get to school and home again.

The school is the ‘best of both worlds’. Our modern facilities sit harmoniously alongside our more traditional buildings and we even have an outdoor classroom in our own, beautiful woods. Indoors or out, pupils will always find a place to be inspired; to learn, excel and realise their potential.

A friendly, nurturing environment

When talking to pupils, parents and staff about what they love most about the School, the answer is usually 'community'. There is a tangible sense of friendliness and unity in a small school where all pupils are known and nurtured.

With just over 340 pupils, the School remains deliberately small, as this allows us to sustain our caring, home-from-home community where every child is supported, challenged and inspired.

Pupils have endless opportunities to learn, excel and realise their potential. There is a five-day teaching week and once lessons have finished, there is time for sport and activities every afternoon, with day and boarding pupils integrating seamlessly across the range of school life. We prioritise development beyond the classroom to ensure pupils leave us as rounded young adults who will become happy and successful in their future lives.

Kingham Hill School in The Good Schools Guide

Several parents wonder if there is ‘something in the water at Kingham’ that promotes such fun and enjoyment from previously unengaged children.
Parents are astonished at the achievements of their children and attribute them to the small numbers and individual attention pupils receive from excellent caring staff.
