Friends of Kingswood

The Friends of Kingswood is a parents' group which arranges regular events for parents to socialise and raises funds that are used to provide additional items for the benefit of the pupils. Friends social functions include events such as balls, quiz evenings and drinks parties and every half term the committee hosts free coffee mornings and afternoon teas in the Sports Pavilion for a casual catch up with other parents as well as regular half termly open evenings to discuss ideas and plans. Everyone is warmly invited to attend all the events – whether to get actively involved or just to find out more and meet other parents.

The Friends also support the school by volunteering at events such as the annual Model United Nations event, manning the Theatre Bar, providing refreshments at parents' evenings and running the Kingswood Nearly New Uniform Shop. Information on events and diary dates is published in the weekly school newsletter.

Revenue is generated via a small annual subscription, added to parents' school bills, and from any modest profits made from events. Funds are then used to purchase specialist items and "extras" such as new sports equipment, landscaping and furnishings for common rooms. All ideas for funding are submitted for discussion to the Friends Committee from pupils and teachers.

The Nearly New Uniform Shop

Friends of Kingswood runs and manages sales of nearly new uniform on a regular basis each term. Good quality current uniform is offered as well as some cricket equipment. Half of the proceeds from these sales is returned to parents and half used for the benefit of the School via the Friends of Kingswood.
