Friends of KWC is a committee of College parents dedicated to raising funds for the benefit of the School and its pupils.
While the College itself provides the pupils with the essentials for learning, the Friends of KWC committee endeavours to provide the ‘little luxuries’!
Teachers and pupils are invited to present Friends with a wish list of items or services and then in the Spring term the Committee agrees on and supplies those that are deemed most beneficial to the School and its pupils.
In the past they have provided School minibuses, science equipment, music and recording equipment, sofas for the Fifth Form Centre and picnic tables, to name a few. In the last few years they have generously supported the renovation of the ground floor studio in the Art block, creating a welcome additional exhibition and teaching space, and the installation of a disabled access lift by the Theatre.
Friends of KWC organise the ever popular May Ball, held on the evening of Founders’ Day each year. The Ball is a wonderful opportunity for Sixth Form, parents, staff and alumni to come together and celebrate the year.
