The Friends of Junior King's • Junior King's School, Canterbury


The Friends of Junior King’s is our Parent Teacher Association (PTA). All parents are members automatically. You can get as involved as you like – everything from coming along to events, helping at events, becoming a Class Representative – or going the whole hog and joining the committee! If you are ever free on a Friday morning during term time, please come along to our coffee morning after drop off in the school dining hall. You’d be very welcome.

Who are the Friends?
All parents become Friends when their child starts at Junior King’s. There is no cost. The Friends are run by a committee of parents and teachers who give up their time to run events and try to make Junior King’s an even more friendly place.

What is The Friends about?
The first and biggest aim of The Friends is to help build our community here at Junior King’s. We want to welcome new families and help the parents settle in (we are all parents too and remember what it was like). We also want to create opportunities for parents to make friends and support each other. Our second aim is to raise money for charity and also for our school. Many of our events focus on charity fund raising. The charities we support change each year and, although parents on the Committee can put forward charities close to their heart, the final say goes to the children; the School Council vote on the charities. Each year, we support one local charity and one international charity.

The Friends have their own website –
