New Adventures

New Adventures

At King’s Hall, children receive the best education to help them succeed in academic life and to prepare them for senior school. Whilst this is, of course, important, we also believe that a child’s learning goes beyond the classroom, and that children benefit from the development of their own specific interests and skills. To supplement such growth, we offer a wide range of co-curricular activities led by our enthusiastic staff. Hobbies are offered both after school and at weekends. Children have the opportunity to make the most of our own facilities, as well as those at King’s College.

Confidence Building

Confidence Building

We offer a varied array of events and activities, from hockey and abseiling, to traditional summer entertainment. The aim of our activities is to ensure our pupils enjoy a healthy outdoor life, with each and every one able to find their niche, widen their interests, and to develop self-confidence and self-belief.

Specialist Hobbies

Specialist Hobbies

Some hobbies are for children with particular passions or talents. We have a number of specialist hobbies that provide a regular time slot for those children who are particularly gifted to work on scholarship projects.

For our musicians, we have a number of opportunities to stretch their skills and confidence.

We are also very fortunate to have a number of dedicated staff who are prepared to give up their time to encourage the children’s interests.

Although sport is very much part of the school curriculum, pupils of all ages and abilities have the opportunity to participate in a more informal setting during hobby time. A range of sports are offered, and are often led by qualified coaches. The junior year groups also benefit from specialist football coaching. For our boarders and day pupils (Year 6-8), Saturday morning activities are on offer. Day pupils are free to opt out of the Saturday programme, but if included, are still able to be excused for other commitments.
