Three-witnesses image smallOn Saturday 8 March 2014, we are delighted to be hosting a touring production of Three Witnesses at Kingham Hill School. We have a limited number of tickets available to members of the public priced at £5. To book please email or telephone Mrs Harriet Dearden 01608 731880.

We have this evening received the following news from Simon Briggs, KH Committee member.

I am sure you will join with us on the School Days team in offering our sincere condolences to Simon and his family and reflect on the sad loss of John from our community.

It is with sadness that we learnt of the death of Dorothy Tucker, school nurse at KHS in the 1970s, who passed away on 9th May 2013. May she rest in peace.

Denis Mead

Mrs P Mead writes to inform us of the death of her husband Denis Mead (KHS 1925-1931) in 2011.

Our heartfelt wishes go out to Mrs Mead.

If you knew Denis please drop us line or make a comment below.

Julie Stoddart smWe are sad to learn of the death of Julie 'Stoddie' Stodart-Cook the Head of Business at KHS after a car accident at a petrol station this weekend.

Having looked at a number of news stories in the press we have selected one from The Witney News by Laura Jones to reproduce here.

"PUPILS and staff at an Oxfordshire school are mourning a "one-off" teacher who was killed in a car crash as she drove to a birthday party.

Mr Pat Gilmore

More sad news with the death of Mr Pat Gimore a teacher on The Hill during the 70's and 80's.

Logan Renner

Kingham Hill School is coming to terms with the death of Logan Renner, a pupil from Year 8. He died as a result of an injury caused by an air rifle at the family home during Sunday morning, 29 January.

Alan Emberson

We are saddened to learn of the death of Alan Emberson. Alan used to teach maths, lead the DoE scheme and drive the mini bus.

At this time we do not have any more details than this, if you know more or knew Alan, such as when he was at the school, please contact the editing team.

Tim Frohwein

Tim Frohwein smWe were very sorry to hear the sad news of the death of Tim Frohwein (Sheffield 1979-1983) over the weekend. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family at this difficult time.


On the front page of the Kingham Hill School website ( there was a survey is being taken, primarily aimed at current pupils and their parents about the KHS uniform, although input from other interested parties is welcome. This survey has now been removed after the school's website went offline earlier this month.

At first glance the feedback the school seeks does, in practical terms, only affect current wearers of the KHS uniform. There is however one question with a great deal of significance in an historical context and could significantly impact the core value of the house system today and in the future.

The question asks if the individually coloured House Tie should be abandoned?

Rather than complete a survey on questions which do not affect you we ask you for your thoughts on this very specific question and will of course forward the results of the vote and any comments you make on to the school.
