The King's School has been built on the philanthropic nature of it's community. It started with the gift from Sir John Percyvale to start the school in the Savage Chapel of St Michael's Church and that generosity has continued over the years. The gifts from former pupils, staff and parents have continued over the years for various projects and most recently with allowing the school to open its stunning 80-acre campus.
As well as the building projects there has always been a focus on enabling local children to attend King's who otherwise wouldn't be able to, this is continuing the work that the direct grant scheme previously provided. This is a key area of focus for the school as we want to offer the opportunity to more students through Bursary Fund. We are currently provide financial assistance to around 1 in 10 students through our Bursary Fund and the only way we can offer more is through support from the King's Community.
