King's in the Community
King’s staff, pupils and their families have always embraced opportunities to contribute to the wider Gloucestershire community and the School has a long history of supporting charitable causes with both practical assistance and financial help, as well as working with other schools and community groups.
These activities are all in addition to the fund-raising and voluntary efforts of our pupils outside school, which are recognised by the Junior and Senior School Citizenship Awards.
One of the School's key aims is to teach pupils to become kind and compassionate, preparing them for their role in the wider community when they leave King’s, so we are immensely proud all that has been acheived.
During the 2022/23 academic year over £19,650 was raised for charity.
