New Sports Centre

Our Founder, CEB Young, was a Christian Philanthropist who funded and built Kingham Hill as a home for children from east London in the late 1800’s. Mr. Young worked closely with renowned architect Mr. Howard Seth-Smith for his vision of the whole Kingham Hill Estate.

When it came to building a sports hall, they travelled to Aldershot, famed for having a gymnasium as fine as any in the country. Mr Young instructed Mr. Seth-Smith to design and build just that. Sadly, what was state-of-the-art in in the 19th century no longer serves us well.

In March, 2018 we received planning permission to proceed with building a new Sports Centre which will be situated near the Astro Turf and carved into the hill. This is a big project for the school and represents a significant investment in our facilities.

We are currently seeking assistance with funding of this project though finance, gifts, foundations and trusts. If you are able to help in any way, please be in touch.
