Christmas has come to Durham House! The House is looking very festive and the girls have hung their stockings with care.
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.
You can pay by cheque (payable to KHS) in advance sent to Harriet Dearden at KHS, or over the phone by credit/debit card on 01608 731 880.

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.
On Sunday 13 January 2013, former pupils and staff returned to the Hill to celebrate the 120th anniversary of the opening of Plymouth House.
Some of you may have known Mr David Hanton personally many more will have benefited from the decisions he made whilst Chairman of the Kingham Hill School Governors in the late 70s through to the early 90's.
