Enhancing King's Projects
King’s Hall continues to thrive and grow in large part due to the philanthropic tendencies of our extended community.
Not wishing to rest on our laurels, we meet regularly with house parents and teachers to discuss how to make the King’s experience even better. Together we have identified the items below as enhancements which sit outside the provision of the School’s day to day budget.
By making a donation towards these items you will have an immediate impact on the experience of our pupils. You can make a general contribution or, if you prefer, specify a particular item you would like to fund. Even a small contribution makes a huge difference.
Thank you on behalf of the whole of the King’s Community.
There are many benches around school, but for outside the new Science Faculty we would like something a little different. Something bright and colourful that will last for many years. The bench we would like will not rot, warp or crack, it does not need painting or varnishing, is UV Protected and made from 100% recycled plastic and is 100% recyclable. Our vision of this bench along with some soft planting would really enhance the outdoor space.

At King’s Hall we love to read, and few things can beat reading outdoors on a sunny day! Having a set of outdoor beanbags, some canvas chairs and a gazebo would mean that we could enjoy reading in the lovely Memorial Garden at break-times whenever the weather permits.
£300 (£240 with Gift Aid)
Due to the success of the outdoor tennis table we already have we would really welcome another. Table tennis helps improve hand, eye coordination while having a competitive fun match. It will also provide another activity for the boarders during their free time. This addition to the hard play area will enhance the surroundings and provides a focal point. In our experience the children love playing table tennis and it brings children of different year groups together.
£600 (£480 with Gift Aid)
We would like to add some painted games to the concrete floor in the Rose Garden. This will give the children even more variety of things to do in break times, help them further understand the value of cooperation and compromise, thus promoting both teamwork and an active, healthy lifestyle.
£500 (£400 with Gift Aid)
Our Chinese pupils have often mentioned how popular Chinese chess is and they would very much like to teach our other pupils how to play it. It would really enhance a boarders’ experience if the Chinese boys could teach the others pupils about their culture through their cultural game.
£30 (£24 with Gift Aid)
We already have a set of Spanish and French bilingual dictionaries, but feel it is essential to have a set of Chinese too. More than just a dictionary, this handy reference book also includes a section on communication giving the pupils the tools they need to communicate effectively and understand aspects of another culture.
£56 (£45 with Gift Aid)
Our pupils are often away for sports tournaments and during very cold weather need suitable warm headwear. The pupils do bring their own but we would really like to have a King’s Hall branded version. These hats are double layer knit with a highly reflective pom pom. We would store them in a trunk for tournament use.
