Private Visits

A private visit is a great way to find out more about the School, and many people like to arrange a visit before they submit an application. The visit usually begins with a meeting with the Headmaster followed by a tour. The tours are personalised to the family, and offer a unique glimpse into life here on ‘the Hill’. Visits run throughout the year, so if you would like to come and find out more about us please complete the form below or contact our Registrar on 01608 731 884 or

We also hold Open Days three times a year to which you are very welcome. Click here for more details and to register your place.

Taster Days and Stays

For those pupils who have made an application and registered with us and wish to spend a day at the School before they start, we can arrange a taster visit. This can include an overnight stay in one of the boarding houses for candidates considering boarding. Applicants will be given a ‘buddy’ - a current pupil of the same age who they will accompany to lessons and activities and who will be able to share their experiences about being a pupil here at Kingham Hill. This can be a helpful step for children for whom living away from home will be a new experience, as they can meet their future housemates, get to know the Houseparents and learn more about the activities, customs (and fun) that are part of boarding life.

Taster days need to be booked in advance and can be arranged with the Registrar during the application process.
