About Kingham Hill School
Let's get straight to the point... The accommodation is basic!
The beds and rooms are designed with students of the boarding school in mind who live there throughout the academic year. It's actually very clever how the beds have been designed, with the wardrobes, drawers and desks being an integral part of the construction. The mattresses are all super comfy memory foam with a tough protective cover on.
Bedding is provided but, bringing a few extra home comforts like an extra pillow, a blanket or sheet just makes sleep much easier when in a new place.
The single rooms are exactly that, small with a single bed, wardrobe, drawers and desk space, but they provide the privacy that most adult students are looking for.
Single and twin rooms are limited in number but the dormitories offer a much larger space and a great place to stay with friends, new or old.
Just imagine you're back on the best school field trip you ever had, making friends, telling stories and sharing midnight snacks but having to keep quiet in case the teachers came around to tell you off. Someone always starts giggling and before you know it, there's 3 or 4 of you laughing so hard together and making memories.
The beds vary in height - low, mid and high. At Curious Creatives we try our best to make sure everyone is in either a low or mid bed. But, several tutors and students have also regressed back to childhood memories and put the mattress on the floor, indoor camping style, and have found this to be comfortable and fun. Just don't make a fire pit in the room!
