King Edward's School Home

An independent day school for boys aged 11 to 18

Parents' Association

Aims of the KESPA

The King Edward's School Parents' Association (KESPA) helps to build links between the parents, the staff and others associated with King Edward's School. We do this mainly by organising a range of social events throughout the school year.

We also engage in activities which support the School and advance the education of the pupils, and we aim to provide an annual grant for Gap Year and Sixth Form Travel, plus a contribution to the ‘Year Book' issued to leavers at the end of Sixth Form.

All parents of pupils at the School automatically become Members of KESPA, unless they specifically choose otherwise, and a one-off subscription is collected with the school fee.

How you can get involved

Please come along to any of our events, to meet other parents and school staff!

We have a Committee, chaired by the Chief Master, made up of volunteers from the parents and staff, who give their time to organise and plan activities.

If you would like to help with events, take part in Open Mornings, join the Committee or have any other queries then please contact us or talk to a Committee member at any of our events. Each year, as pupils leave the school we lose active members so we always welcome new members to help with events or to join the Committee.
