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 the KHPA committee meetings. The feedback and input from the association is invaluable to the school.

A committee is elected each year at the association's AGM, and a chairperson, secretary and treasurer are elected every three years from the committee members. 

The KHPA meets about every six weeks, and divides up responsibility for the many events that they run. Being a member of the parent body is a great way of getting involved in these events and to meet other parents, which might not happen too often in secondary school. Additional volunteers are always welcome!

The KHPA is a member of the NPCPP and COMPASS. Click here for a link to the recent NPCPP 'Newsblast', which compiles some interesting news items on education.
