Kingshott School is an IAPS coeducational day school for boys and girls aged 3 to 13 in Hitchin, Hertfordshire.
About the school
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. There are 365 children who enjoy the school’s excellent facilities, dedicated teaching staff, playing fields and outdoor play areas.
Kingshott School admits children with a broad range of academic ability. We welcome children with learning difficulties, disabilities or where English is a second language. However, consideration is given as to whether or not a child would genuinely cope with the curriculum and the School environment. Places are offered, subject to our assessment criteria, when we are confident that we can meet the needs of each individual applicant whilst maintaining the balance of needs within each year group.
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, will be delighted to arrange an individual visit to the school for you on a working school day.
