We encourage our students to consider the wider world in which they live and offer opportunities to learn about and practically serve others, both locally and overseas, through a variety of initiatives across the school:
Charity and mission connections
The school works with a number of different charities and individuals working at home or abroad and raises the profile of these across the school through assemblies, class visits, fund raising, and partnerships.
For the 2016-2017 academic year we have decided to fundraise for Macmillan Cancer Care and See Saw, a local charity that supports bereaved children throughout Oxfordshire. They will be receiving some of the money from our Christmas fayre.
Other connections include:
- Helping Hands in Uganda
- Open Doors
- The Besom in Witney The Secondary department has undertaken 42 Besom projects over the past 6 years
- Jan White who lives and works in Uganda and runs a hospice and medical treatment centre
- The British Heart Foundation
- The Refugee Support Network was our supported charity for the 2015-2016 academic year.
Local community links
The children greatly enjoy performing music and drama productions for other local schools and visiting homes for the elderly to meet the residents to sing Christmas Carols.
We enjoy good international links through past teachers and other church connections who often bring teachers from abroad to come and spend time at The King’s School. Countries represented include Rwanda, Zambia, Poland, Switzerland, India, Holland and Korea.
