Christmas at Kingshott

Christmas is an incredibly special and busy time of year at Kingshott School. 

As well as the children enjoying all their normal lessons, there has been plenty of time for some Christmas cheer including:

  • The return of our Carol Concert at St. Mary's Church. Pupils sang beautifully to a packed out church of parents and staff. 
  • Father Christmas making an impromptu visit to Kingshott Pre-Prep - to our youngest pupils - in the final days of term.
  • The renowned Kingshott Staff Panto! Organised by our Director of Drama, and brilliantly supported by staff across the school, the staff panto is the same amazing quality of drama for which Kingshott enjoys a longstanding reputation.  As well as providing great fun for our pupils to enjoy, the panto raised £1,000 for local charity, Herts Homeless.  Many thanks go to all those who donated from the audience of parents, staff and the local community.
  • A deliciously festive Christmas lunch for all pupils on the last day of term. Wearing Christmas jumpers, pupils were able to tuck into all the delicious Christmas food favourites. Our wonderful catering team bedecked the dining hall with decorations too, providing a lovely festive backdrop!
  • Undertaking some fun Christmas baking themselves - read more here!
  • Taking part in the wonderful Christmas Tree Festival held at Holy Saviour Church. As well as decorating our own Kingshott tree, to join all the others from the local community, pupils enjoyed taking part in the special preview and concert on the Friday night. 
  • The Pre-Prep Nativity - Baarmy Bethlehem - if you haven't already, read more here.

"The last two weeks of term alone have highlighted the strength of our community," concludes Headmaster, David Weston. "All of our communal events showcase the wonderful collaborative and warm community atmosphere at Kingshott.  The staff pantomime, the Pre-Prep nativity and our annual Carol Service at St Mary’s Church in Hitchin - all provide opportunities for our children to enjoy each others company, to gain confidence trying new activities, to have fun on the stage or find the pleasure in watching and supporting others."

The Kingshott community wishes everyone - pupils, parents, staff, alumni and our local community - a very happy Christmas and New Year.
