Friends of Kingswood Prep School "FoKPS"
Friends of Kingswood Prep School is a lively group of parents who work in partnership with the school to organize a number of fundraising and social events throughout the academic year. As well as raising money for the school, these events are important to ensure families come together, feel welcome and part of the Kingswood Community. Events include: Fireworks night, Christmas Fayre, Quiz Nights, Themed Dinner and Dance, Children’s Disco, Comedy Night and various book and cake sales throughout the year.
We receive a wide variety of requests and consider them all however large or small. Requests are discussed and funding allocation agreed at the committee meetings.
Some recent examples of projects we have supported and items purchased:
contributions to the cost of the new school Playground, fully funded the outdoor classroom in the Secret Garden, funded the new Adventure Playground in the garden of High Vinnalls, purchased new IPads for the Pre-Prep, purchase of new musical instruments, metal detectors for the Archaeology Club.
