Friends of King's Hall School

Come and experience life at King's Hall! Our taster days and boarding stays can be tailored to suit the interests o… - yesterday


The sole aim of the Friends is to provide a social element for parents, teachers and friends associated with the school.

The intention is to run a series of small and large events each year, whereby people can choose to get together in a sociable and friendly environment.

It’s not a PTA, nor is it a charity. The events will be self-funding and if any surplus is created, it will be ploughed back into the events programme or into supporting the Enhancing King's Fund.

The Friends organising team is deliberately small in number – Chief Pelican Donald Rice, assistant Pelicans Claire Chippendale (Year 6 parent), Annie Durham (Year 4, 2 and Reception parent), and Julian Mack (Year 2, 3 and 4 parent) also Director of Development, King's Schools, Taunton.



2019 Forthcoming Events

Family Dog Show - Sunday 16 June, 2.30pm - 4.30pm.
£2.00 entry for the first class, £1.00 for any other classes. Bookings via the School Office.

Most Recent Past Event

Tennis Tournament - Saturday 18 May
Bacon butties, flapjacks, orange squash and A-level standard maths algorithms can mean only one thing: the annual FoKHs parent-and-child tennis contest. The morning started grey and cool but ended warm and bright - not unlike the parents themselves to be honest - and produced a winning pair in the form of Matt Jones and Morgan. Yes, ok, so Mr. Jones is not technically a parent and Morgan not technically an orphan, but the FOKHs church is broad and Jaqui Besley’s superb spreadsheet allowed for some flexibility in pairings (if not in scorings). It was ironic, though not particularly surprising, that the youngest adult on the court won the bottle of Champagne first prize, but running them a close second was Luke and Gus.

Special thanks to the caterers for their delicious butties and flapjacks, Jaqui for her brilliant organising of the contest, Annie Durham and Sarah Lewis for stewarding it all on the day.

Racing Demon – Thursday 6 December
On Thursday 6 December, Years 6, 7 and 8 parents and pupils got together for a game of Racing Demon.

Racing Demon is a very fast, very entertaining and very easy-to-learn card game, which gets more and more fun the more you have in a group.

Chief Pelican, Donald Rice, explained the rules and the parents and children battled it out.
