Statement prior to the Annual General Meeting

KHA Reunion and AGM – 18th May 2013 at Kingham Hill School from 1pm

The KHA (formerly the Kingham Hill Old Boys Association, founded by the Founder's brother), is almost as old as the School itself. Historically we have been involved in organising events for ex-pupils and receiving and managing money donated by you, your families and friends of The Hill. Since 1986 donations have been managed by a legal charitable structure known as the Centenary Trust Fund (CTF) with the trustees appointed by the KHA Committee.

Last year the headmaster Nick Seward made the KHA Committee aware of the school's intention to begin managing all alumni communications, events and fundraising. This was described as something which should be within the remit of the school and that a new development officer would be appointed. Generally, this is becoming increasingly common across independent schools and colleges, and it does make sense in as much as more recent leavers have higher expectations of their alumni organisations, and increasingly these expectations are beyond that which can reasonably be met by a handful of volunteers in their spare time.

Teaching At Kingham Sm12 reflections of four decades of change at the Hill 1983 to present-day.

I had left the mission organisation Open Doors in January 1983 and had taken a series of temporary teaching posts when I applied to the advert placed in TES for a post at the school, as a replacement for Bill. So with no experience of independent education and cause of much consternation in the common room of the comprehensive I was teaching at, I migrated from South Wales with Ros, Philip, and with Natasha not quite with us, we arrived at the school in the August 1983
