Meet the Students

From the earliest years of education (EYFS) to the culmination of their journey in Sixth Form, our students at KH8 continuously inspire us with their remarkable achievements and unwavering commitment. They play a pivotal role in shaping the dynamic culture and ethos within our school, leaving an indelible impact on the entire community. With their dedication, passion, and active participation in a diverse range of activities, clubs, and initiatives, they create an atmosphere of boundless enthusiasm and inclusivity that resonates throughout our campus.

Studying at KH8 was a truly unique experience. It was very hard to find myself bored whenever I was on campus as there was always so much to do. I truly felt the ability to express creativity, leadership and enjoyment through the multitude of facilities and opportunities available, all whilst being able to hone my academic skills. The small but undeniably strong and supportive network at this school always made me feel at home, and as a boarder the proximity of my friends also let me form bonds and memories that I hope to never forge.

I looked forward to attending every weekday morning, it had cultivated me into the person that I am today, both academically and intrinsically. With the overflowing of opportunities presented to students, I found myself actively being challenged to get out of my comfort zone to experience new things.

I truly could not have been more wrong about fearing the change that comes with transferring schools to KH8. Change was everything I never knew I needed, and now, my short but fun-filled four years at KH8 are the most cherished memories I have. KH8 and its wonderful people will always hold a special place in my heart.”

Whether it's organising captivating events, taking the lead in impactful community service projects, or fostering a spirit of collaboration and unity, our students exemplify exceptional leadership qualities. Their ability to motivate and inspire their peers, along with our staff, is truly awe-inspiring. Their tireless efforts and contributions uplift our entire educational environment, creating a vibrant and supportive atmosphere that encourages every member of our school to thrive and grow.

Throughout my years in the school I have built up the academic knowledge and skills that will help me in my future. I will never forget the fun experiences on offer at KH8, from playing sports or just spending time with my school friends. I am hoping to carry this momentum of gaining experiences and achieving goals onto my university life. I want to say thank you to the dedicated teachers and staff who have helped me with my journey.

The years have never gone by faster. I’ve had several highly entertaining experiences such as founding our Chess club. The common room where I met most of my friends had many hilarious interactions, games and conversations! Thank you, especially to my teachers and, as my old classmate once said, "don’t become strangers".

At KH8, we celebrate the invaluable role our students play in shaping the culture of our school. Their unwavering determination, innovative thinking, and empathy serve as beacons of inspiration for all. Through their actions and achievements, they embody the core values and principles we hold dear, Responsibility, Resilience and Respect.

I chose KH8 because I wanted to study A level abroad and Malaysia is pretty close to Taiwan, I can therefore fly home during half term. This school stood out from others I visited because its built on big grounds which have well equipped facilities and very experienced teachers. Teachers at KH8 are very passionate and keen to always help us. They offer extra lessons during any free time they may have. This is my first time boarding in a school, boarding has really helped me become a much more independent person, this will benefit me when I transition into my university life.

I chose KH8 because of its facilities, the ability to take part in a lot of co-curricular activities, and the small class sizes which would allow greater focus from my teachers. The teachers are passionate about what they teach and are willing to help you at every opportunity. Boarding at KH8 was also a new experience for me, I enjoyed it a lot, it gave me the opportunity to make so many new friends from different year groups as well as giving me a taste of even more activities that have further contributed to developing me as a person.
