Parents' Association

The King’s Hospital Parents Association (KHPA) is very active in supporting the students, their parents and the school throughout the year, through events and fundraising. The Headmaster attends their committee meetings and their feedback and input is invaluable to the school.

A Committee is elected each year at the KHPA AGM, this year (2017) being held on Tuesday Septembers 12th @7.30pm. A nomination sheet went out to each household in the August mailing but is also available in downloads. A new Chairperson, Secretary and Treasurer is elected every three years from the elected committee members. Please see downloads on this page for newly elected 2017 Committee.

The KHPA meets approximately every 6 weeks, and divides up responsibility for the many events that they run. The success of all these events is dependent on support from all the parent body and it is a great way to meet other parents, which doesn’t happen as frequently in secondary school. Additional volunteers are always welcome!
