Kingham Hill Association - Statement

Following the resignation of Simon Howlett as Chairman of the Kingham Hill Association on 1 December 2013, a representation from the committee met with the Headmaster and Development Officer on 16 January to discuss the future of the KHA and its Centenary Trust Fund.

As stated at the AGM on 18 May 2013, the KHA accepts that the school has decided to take total responsibility for alumni relations and communications. Furthermore, the committee has recently considered that it would not be appropriate to continue to seek donations in competition with KHS for bursaries. It was therefore proposed that further invitations for donations to the CTF would cease. Awards for bursaries from the fund would continue to be made until the fund was exhausted. If donations continued to arrive, these would be accepted.

It was acknowledged that the legal status of the CTF required the continued existence of the KHA committee. It was proposed that the KHS Development Officer should become the new Chairman of the KHA committee. The Headmaster welcomed the proposal wholeheartedly. He said that he was pleased that this would enable a closer working relationship between the school and the KHA. It was accepted by the school that as well as being agreed by the KHA committee, the proposal would need to be voted on at the next KHA AGM.

At the last AGM, the collective voted for the committee to consider the reintroduction of subscriptions. This has been discussed and it was agreed that neither the school nor the committee favours collecting subscriptions at this time. Further information regarding the decision can be found in the minutes of the meeting on 25 January, which will be published shortly.

On Saturday 25 January, the Development Officer Harriet Dearden was elected temporary Chairman of the KHA. A further vote of the wider membership of the KHA will occur at the AGM which will take place on Saturday 26 April 2014.
