Mathematics and Science building - update

MS building AprilThere have been some visible changes to the building site in March. Last Monday the concrete base was poured: 45 cement lorries worth of concrete poured, with a lorry arriving on site every 12 minutes.  A large crane arrived on site yesterday and has begun to unload the timber frame of the building. The frame will begin to go up over the Easter holidays and the site will look very different when the pupils return for the Trinity term.

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.
