Friends of Kingswood

Friends of Kingswood

Friends of Kingswood (FOK) is an informal parents group. It supports parents and the school through its various activities and from time to time raises funds to support pupils' extra-curricular interests.

Principle activities include:

  • Organising parents social events (like quizzes, nights out, dining events)
  • Operating the on-site Second Hand Uniform Shop
  • The running of the FOK bar at various school events
  • Acting as an additional point of contact for parents

Termly Meetings

FOK meets at least once a term to share ideas and plan events.  All the details about these meetings are shared in the school newsletter, in the dedicated FOK section.

Year Co-ordinators

Each year group has one or two year parent co-ordinators. They help support communication, act as a point of contact for new parents and arrange various year-wide social events. At the start of each school year every parent is emailed the contact details for their year co-ordinator.

Second Hand Uniform Shop

The Shop, staffed by parent volunteers sells donated second hand uniform and sports equipment. It is opened weekly during term time (on alternate Tuesdays & Wednesdays, 16.30 to 17.30) with additional one-off sales scheduled before the start of each academic year.

Up to date opening times are listed in the weekly school newsletter which is sent to all parents. There is a donation point (open 24/7) outside the shop, on Fonthill Road.

Parent Volunteers

FOK relies on volunteers from the parent body. We have a friendly team of parents who staff the bars, run the shop and arrange the social events.

Any parent who wants to learn more can contact their year co-ordinators or come along to our termly meetings.
