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.
Our recent efforts have seen the purchase of a defibrillator to be based at school. It was installed in spring 2020 for both school and community use.
Other connections include:
- Open Doors
- The Besom in Witney The Secondary department has undertaken over 50 Besom projects over the past 8 years
- Dr 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.
- Macmillan Cancer Care and See Saw, a local charity that supports bereaved children throughout Oxfordshire, were our chosen charities for the 2016-2017 academic year.
- During the 2017-2018 academic year we raised money for bowel cancer patients at the Oxford hospitals.
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.
