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.

The King's Christmas Fair

The King's Christmas Fair, organised by the Friends of King's usually takes place on the first Sunday in December.  The 2016 Fair, held on Sunday 4th December, was a huge success and raised in the region of £3,500 for charity.  Over 50 stalls were present in the Sports Hall for the several hundred shoppers who attended. Mulled wine and live carol singing by the choirs of King’s Bruton and the Bruton Choral Society were enjoyed by everyone. Many thanks to all the members of the Friends of King's and also the pupils who helped make the fair such a wonderful occasion. 

If you are interested in having a stall at the 2017 Fair please contact Gilly - bookings will be taken from mid-summer 2017.
