From September 2014 we will be welcoming back a familiar name to the Hill. Clyde House will return to the Hill following an absence of a number of years. Clyde is now our Junior Boys' Day House for boys aged between 11 and 14.
On Sunday 9th September we opened our third girls' boarding house. With more pupils at Kingham Hill at the start of this school year than at the end of the last, and with the percentage of girls at the school now 40%, more beds needed to be found.
Music on the Hill is delighted to welcome the CNS Allstars to perform in the Chapel at Kingham Hill School on Saturday 9 November 2013 at 7:30pm as part of its autumn series of concerts. The jazz band was formed in 2007 by a former KHS pupil and the school's first organ scholar, Alex Chalstrey, who will be returning to KHS to perform.
The CNS Allstars are a locally based band who enjoy playing a unique blend of swing, jazz and rock ‘n’ roll, with tunes ranging from those of Nat King Cole and Dean Martin to Paolo Nutini and Mark Ronson.
John Gibbons (KHS 2000-2007), in his promotional role with BMW, is tasked with the enviable job of promoting the new BMW i8 by driving it around Oxfordshire and Northamptonshire and photographing it in a variety of locations that fans of the new supercar are challenged to identify! We were delighted to welcome John to KHS earlier this week and to catch up with what he has been doing since his time on the Hill.
It is always good to keep in touch with Hillians. John was part of the US Pentathlon Team until very recently and is remembered for keeping his fencing coach, Mr Mulholland, very much on his toes!
On Saturday 22 March, we were delighted to host the annual sixth form quiz night, welcoming old boys and current pupils for a great evening’s entertainment. With Mexican themed food, and cakes and treats supplied by the Eden Farm team, everyone was well feed by the time the quiz got underway.
Kingham Hill School is looking to explore its fascinating links with Ontario. Between 1895 and 1946 ten boys a year left the school to be trained in agriculture on a farm in Ontario purchased by the school’s founder, Charles Edward Baring Young.
Following the success of the Hermitage Ensemble concert this May, Kingham Hill School is delighted to launch a new series of concerts called Music on the Hill. The next concert in the series is a vocal and piano recital with talented baritone Edwin Kaye and pianist Chris Collis, which takes place on Saturday 29th June at 7:30pm in the Chapel.
On Sunday 5 May 2013 at 7:30 pm, Kingham Hill School will welcome the Hermitage Ensemble from St Petersburg for a magnificent evening of Russian music. This is the second visit by the choir, whose first performance at Kingham Hill in 2012 attracted music lovers from across the region.
