Book now for our PRE-PREP OPEN MORNING on 11 February

At King's Hall School

We rise by lifting others.

Robert Ingersoll

In founding King’s Schools, Canon Woodard’s aim was to make a first-class education accessible to a much broader spectrum of society. He was an early standard bearer for educational equality.

With an eye always on the future, the work of our Development Office continues at pace. The recent developments across both schools has further enhanced the experience of your pupils and would have not been made possible without the generosity of our former pupils and supporters of King's.

At King's Hall, the three phases of the adventure playground enhanced our children's experience outdoors, while the new science faculty and cookery school offered bright modern facilities for all manner of experiments and learning to take place.

These new facilities would not have been possible without vital fundraising, the gift of legacies and our accessible monthly giving through The 1880 Club.

Current Capital Campaign

 

The building of our Sixth Form Centre was made possible by the generosity of several former King's pupils, parents, other supporters of the school, as well as through the careful financial stewardship of our Council and our Director of Finance and Operations.

 

There is still plenty of opportunity to contribute to this exciting project,and you can do so in two ways, either by contacting our Headmaster to discuss the project in more detail, or by clicking the button below.

Sixth Form Centre

This exciting £3.5million project will provide a very smart, and distinctively modern and entrepreneurial feel to the Sixth Form experience at King’s. It will house a social area, a large study area and six classrooms (to include the business studies and economics departments), break-out spaces and offices. 

With a build schedule of 50 weeks, the new Centre is due to be opened sometime early in the Michaelmas Term of 2022. Sadly, too late to benefit the current Upper Sixth (and our Headmaster!) but a wonderful prospect for all our other year groups.

 

Opening in the Michaelmas Term 2022, our new Sixth Form Centre will accommodate a burgeoning programme of education and life skills. With the ambition of creating the best sixth form centre in the South West region, it has been designed by the pupils for the pupils.

The site is situated on the north side of the Chapel and will be modern, flexible, inspiring, technologically advanced, sympathetic to new learning strategies and anchored in sustainable energy principles.

Past Capital Campaigns

Sports Performance and Cricket Centre

Sports Performance and Cricket Centre

This state-of-the-art sports facility was formally opened by Jos Buttler OA Tuckwell 2007.

Providing much needed indoor space, pupils benefit from having access to year-round training in a number of sports, predominantly cricket.

This facility enables cricket practice and development training to take place all year round and also facilitates a number of other sports and activities, such as pilates, fencing and dance.

Boasting three lanes, long run-ups and video analysis facilities, the centre has been visited and used by the New Zealand Black Caps during the 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup, as well as by our partners Somerset County Cricket Club.

Science Faculty

Science Faculty

Opened in 2019, our science faculty at King's Hall provides a stimulating environment where we can teach science practically, to give every child the opportunity to ‘get their hands dirty’, creating lasting memories and experiences that make the subject so much more accessible.

Bright, modern, airy, with an entrance atrium decorated with vibrant and inspiring scientific wall art, our pupils can access ITC facilities in this space, as well as holding their regular Tortoise Society meetings and caring for their hard-shelled friends, Turbo and Everest.

Golf Facilities

Golf Facilities

The purpose of the facility is to introduce the game to our pupils across both schools. Often a restrictive game for many reasons, we are aiming to help to encourage more pupils to take up the sport and for current players to improve their (short) game. Boasting a top spec artificial golf green with six golf holes, all with varying degrees of difficulty and undulations, the green responds like a normal golf green but with the added benefit of minimal maintenance. We have also installed some chipping practice pods as well as a range hitting area.

Amphitheatre

Amphitheatre

Built in 2014 and funded by an OA, this is a rather unique outside space that lends itself as a music and drama venue, a place for outdoor worship, an outside classroom, physical training area and a place for quiet reflection.

Cookery School

Cookery School

Our new cookery school was opened in 2019 by former Masterchef quarter-finalist, Hope Pointing. This bright and modern space enables our younger pupils to explore and develop a range of life skills, as well as helping to ignite in them a love of cooking and healthy eating. Pupils now enjoy cookery lessons as part of the DT curriculum, as well as their Saturday morning activities.

Philip Richards Building

Philip Richards Building

Now ten years old, this buidling was is one of our major Capital Campaigns of recent years. Still as fresh and as modern as it was in 2011, this building is much used and much loved, housing our library and a number of classrooms. We recently celebrated its first ten years and were delighted to be joined by Philip Richards OA, whose incredle donation made this project possible.

Silvermead Art Studio

Silvermead Art Studio

Our art department received a boost in 2016 when the Silvermead Studio was completed to complement the existing art facilities. This modern, light and versatile new building was generously funded by an OA.

The new studio is light and spacious, allowing for large-scale collaborative projects to take place. The mezzanine floor is equipped with a quiet space, housing computers and other equipment for digital work.

Adventure Playground

Adventure Playground

This development took place across three phases and has resulted in the most wonderful outdoor space for your younger pupils. There are all manner of rope ladders and climbing elements, crow's nest look out platforms and the very popular scramble net. As well as a place for fun and adventure, the space is also used as an outside classroom, where pupils can read stories together and find quieter spots for some independent research. Our little wooden nooks are perfect for reading, sketching, and studying, or for chatting with friends. This project was made possible through generous donations from our King's community.

Indoor Climbing Wall

Indoor Climbing Wall

Funded by The OA Club, this has been a fantastic addition to our facilities at King's College. Climbing is a very popular activity, made so much more accessible by this all-weather wall.
