King's Bruton

Friends

In This Section

The Friends of King’s is an organisation that exists to provide a helpful network for parents as well as raising money to support School projects and provide additional resources for the Houses and Departments throughout the School.

Set up over 60 years ago, the Friends of King’s is run by a volunteer Committee made up of current parents, former parents and staff, who meet termly. Working alongside the School’s Events Manager, they organise various events throughout the year including coffee mornings, the Christmas Fair, clay pigeon shoots, dances and quiz nights, to name but a few. Housemasters, Housemistresses and other staff can bid for funds and the Committee, together with the Headmaster, as one of the Charity’s four Trustees, decide the best way for the funds to be allocated. Membership of The Friends of King’s is available to all parents, former parents and other interested parties for a fee of £30 per annum.

For further information regarding the Friends of King’s please email: friends@kingsbruton.com.
