PREP

Independent preparatory schools do not have to follow the National Curriculum or submit test results to the Department for Education so there is no individual school performance data or star rating.

Visit the school's website to learn more about their unique curriculum, policies on testing and common leaver destinations (a good indicator of pupil progress). See our About page for information on Choosing A Prep School.

Starting a new school at any age can be a daunting prospect not only for pupils, but parents too! At Kingshott, we aim to provide you with clear and comprehensive information about the admissions procedure, from initial enquiry to the first day at school.

Whilst most children join us at the start of a new academic year, admissions are possible throughout the year, subject to assessment and availability of a place.  However, we are increasingly oversubscribed and early registration is always advised, especially for our Nursery and Reception class intake.

Our Admission Officers, Mrs Farley and Mrs Payne, will be delighted to arrange an individual visit to the school for you on a working school day.  

To have an initial discussion, please email: [email protected]

EYFS QUALITY AWARD – ONE OF ONLY TWO SCHOOLS IN HERTFORDSHIRE

 

 

 

 

Kingshott are extremely proud to announce that we have been awarded an Early Years Quality Mark. The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) was established under the Childcare Act 2006 and is a framework for learning, development and care for children from birth to five. Here at Kingshott it includes the children in our Nursery and Reception year groups.

We recognise that children develop and learn in different ways and at different rates. Our children experience a wide range of activities and skills that provide the right foundation for future development as they progress through school and life. Small class sizes ensure that every child is treated as an individual, enabling all teaching staff to pinpoint the next steps in each child's learning journey.

All our staff respond to each child’s individual emerging needs and interests, to support their growth and development through warm and positive interaction. Our aim is to ensure that children enjoy their EYFS experience in the care of skilful and caring staff and make a confident and smooth transition as they move through the school. We share and communicate the child’s learning experiences and developmental milestones by working in partnership with parents.

THE KINGSHOTT LEARNING EXPERIENCE

 

Mark Seymour, headmaster, with Kingshott pupils 
 

Life at school is about learning.

But learning is more than simply an accumulation of information and facts. If that were so, school would be boring.

Education at Kingshott is interesting. It is exciting, and it is varied. At Kingshott emphasis is placed on making the learning experience as enriching as possible. We want our children to be happy, achieve their potential and to be a success. We believe in the children being, 'The best me I can be'.

Kingshott School is set on the outskirts of Hitchin, Hertfordshire, and provides an outstanding co-educational experience for children aged 3 to 13. Standing in 23 acres and surrounded by countryside, it is hard to believe that central London is only a 30 minute train journey away. Kingshott serves Hitchin, Letchworth, Baldock, Stevenage, Welwyn and the villages around them, towns and villages in Bedfordshire, and South Cambridgeshire. The children enjoy the school’s excellent facilities, dedicated teaching staff, playing fields and outdoor play areas.
