Greetings! Thank you for taking a look at what you can do to help King's.
King's would not be the school it is today without a rich history of benefactors and philanthropic donations. Unlike many independent schools, King's does not benefit from an ongoing endowment and has relied, over the years, on the generosity of supporters to help the school thrive, develop and meet the needs of King's pupils.
We work hard to ensure that our fees remain as affordable as possible and we support many pupils attending the school with scholarships and small bursaries. This means that, although the fees cover the running expenses of the School, they cannot always cover the cost of the additional projects that can make a real difference to the lives of King's pupils, as the School grows and develops. Further details on our current fundraising initiatives for Music and Art are below - thank you so much for supporting King's, your help means the children can get the most from their time here and enable us to offer opportunities to other schools in the local area who also benefit from King's facilities.
David Morton, Headmaster
Thank you to all of you who have donated money to help buy new equipment for the Music School! Pupil are already enjoying the space and staff are happily teaching in all of the many practice rooms!
We have raised nearly £15,000 towards buying the pianos a game changing amount of money for the Music department but as ever, if Music is what you would like to donate money towards we are always delighted to receive funds from those who want to assist the music growth of the School.
Once again thanks to all who have already donated!

W.J. Masters’ Fine Art Memorial Fund
In honour of John’s love of fine art the King’s School Foundation has created a memorial fund. The money from the fund will be used to pay for an annual specialist Fine Art Day for GCSE and A-level students. It is hoped to raise £5000 to fund the next 10 years of Fine Art Days. In September 2019 the fund will support Ian Murphy to come to Wardle House for a day of drawing, sketchbook work and developing ideas.
