"Thank you so much for all your help and support with F. His time at Knowl Hill has been priceless ; we were blessed when we found you and we are truly sad to be leaving.

"I have been meaning to e-mail you since D started this Academic year – her third at Guildford.
We have always been so thankful - purely by chance we came across Knowl Hill on Google and up popped your wonderful school - the rest is an experience of a life time which we cherish.
D did so well with her G.C.S.Es. She is enjoying her violin music and achieved Grade 1 the other year - loves baking, something she started getting interested in at Knowl Hill with the cooking course .
By all means we would be happy to share our experience anonymously for others to be inspired and reassured." (RH - 17/12/2016)

"(My daughter) has come on fabulously over the last year. It may not show up in test results (yet) but her confidence is unmissable. We will often find her reading and writing just for the fun of it and lately, she can count! (well done Mr Plunkett). She seems to be on the an increasingly upward trajectory – great job." MR, parent of Year 5 child, 21/07/16

"I was lucky enough yesterday to accompany the juniors on their trip to the V&A. I wanted to let you know how impressed I was. Lead by your wonderful Miss Fraser, what a courteous group of children. They were engrossed in all that we saw, they asked / answered questions and all participated in the activities that the tour guide set us. You could tell that all the children were respectful and supportive of each other. At lunchtime they sat beautifully together and talked. When they had finished, without being asked, they collected all the rubbish from their packed lunches and put it in the bin.
Despite a lot of walking (I was tired by the end of the day) I didn't hear one moan or groan. They were all great representatives of the school and you should be very proud of them." JM 04/02/2016
"After leaving KHS I went to college and studied fine art. I really liked art and considering I got two A*'s I thought it was the right path to take. I completed college and then went to university and studied Graphic Design. I left university with a 2:1 BA (Hons) Degree. I then started work oddly enough in a finance company as I was drawn to the money. I think after years and years of studying and art I burnt out all my creativity and just wanted to work.
I worked in finance for 5 years and became fed up with the dull 9-5 office life style.
I ended up joining the Metropolitan Police. After many many exams, assessments, and a few years in uniform I have now successfully obtained the role as a Detective. This has always been a pipe dream that I wanted to pursue. I'm now a Detective in CID.
This is another reason why I wanted to thank all at KHS. Without the help and support I received I would never have been able to achieve what I have. Not only did I learn so much but KHS provided me with the positive attitude and mentality to strive for anything that you want to achieve." (DT - 19/10/2016)
