Our current President of the Former Pupils' & Staff Association, Barry Jones, has been a generous and lifelong supporter of the School, particularly the Bursary Fund. Although we remain unable to welcome visitors on-site, our Development Office has shared with Barry some photos of the room that has been named after him.

Barry's son, Julian Jones, said "We are truly honoured as a family by this, but especially Dad. His first association with the school started in 1944 as a first year pupil and has continued ever since as a pupil, Maxonian Old Boy Cricketer, parent, business supporter, sponsor and Former Pupil Association committee member; many of which as President of the committee. His support of the school has always given him much pleasure and it has certainly given me, as a former pupil, many, many fantastic opportunities to which I will always be thankful."

Barry commented "I am thrilled with this kind gesture from the school and believe it to be a great honour. I shall treasure it forever. Thank you, The King's School."
