Through caring and support for others, all things are possible.

KHS is a Years 9-13 co-educational secondary school, with a roll of close to 1,000 students. We help our students be the best they can be by providing a safe, modern learning environment where students can explore their interests and grow into confident and happy young people. 

Our school is situated on 8 hectares of grounds, with more than half being allocated to open spaces and sports fields. We have excellent sports facilities and a state-of-the-art technology block that includes two industrial kitchens for hospitality and catering.   We have a thriving extracurricular arts culture and have been recognised as being at the forefront of outdoor education and leadership.
