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.
JUNIOR MATCH years 7 & 8:
U12/13's Latimer V Greenwich
WINNING TEAM: Greenwich
A very strongly fought game ending with no goals being scored either side at full time causing it to go to penalties. Greenwich won on sudden death penalties.
INTER MATCH year 9:
U14's Latimer 3 V Greenwich 9
WINNING TEAM: Greenwhich
This was a tight competition....
Plymouth vs Clyde
The match started off fairly evenly but soon Clyde, through Luke Maslen, started to up their game. With his side steps and game management Clyde began to take the lead scoring try after try. Ed Thompson was hard to hold back, scoring several tries. Plymouth clung on with determination, continuing to threaten with their captain, Thomas Barbour, leading from the front. But unfortunately they couldn't convert their possession and threats into points.
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.
The 1st XV rugby team got the new rugby season off to a great start with a 7-5 victory over local rivals Sibford. Man of the match, Louis Palmer, scored the try which was converted by Jake Phillips.
A-Level results day 2013 offers yet another opportunity to celebrate ever-improving academic outcomes!
Of course there are always the high-flyers – Alex Sandru - A*, A*, A; Anna Trogstad - A*, A, A; Oskar Mahony - A, A, A. And there are so many others that have achieved very well indeed, doing themselves proud and helping to push up Kingham's pass rate to a record 61% A*-B.
Kingham Hill rugby has undergone massive development over the last three years. We are hugely thankful to our sponsors, Red Kite Funds, for giving us the resources to obtain high quality training equipment and team wear and assistance with our rugby tour. The hard work that has been put in to develop this sport by the staff and players meant that we had earned the right to tour, and France was selected as a suitable destination due to the quality of their rugby, their hospitality and the location of the Rugby World Cup 2011.
The headline is a quote from a number of the rugby coaching staff as they watched the Sheffield senior team win the coveted inter-house rugby trophy for this year. The boys had spent many practice sessions reminding themselves of the tactical differences between Sevens and the 15 man game they had been playing all term.
