The Durham Reunion Lunch this year was held in the Chequers public house in Churchill, close to Kingham Hill. Though some previous Durhamites couldn't attend through prior commitments, went the day well, if you'll excuse the quote, and it saw the return of other faces.
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!
Building contractors, Beard, are making good progress on the new Mathematics and Science building despite difficult weather conditions over the winter months. The build remains on schedule and will be open later this year. Please see the latest Beard newsletter, available here, for further information.
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.
On Friday 30th November our Year 12 and 13 Government and Politics classes took part in West Oxfordshire District Council’s Politics in Action Day.
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.
