Supporting Our Community

Through collaborations with local organisations and schools, we hope to contribute to the wellbeing and development of ou neighbouring towns.

A Co-Curricular Commitment to Volunteering

Through Warwick School and King High School's ‘’Friday Afternoon Enrichment Program’’, GCSE and Sixth-Form students from both schools dedicate an afternoon per week to volunteering in the local community.

Pupils are able to choose from a variety of volunteering placements, ensuring they are motivated and contributing in a way that is meaningful and inspiring to them. Examples of placements include:

  • 1:1 Maths and English mentoring at local primary schools
  • Volunteering at local charity shops and food-banks
  • Litter picking in parks and pedestrianized areas
  • Reading to local care-home residents.

It is often the case that students form strong bonds with the people and organisations they devote their time to. These bonds continue to flourish way beyond students’ individual school journeys and many pupils who take part in community service seek out volunteering experiences when continuing to higher education.

The timetabling of weekly volunteering enables students to consistently contribute to their local area, instilling the value of active citizenship and social awareness. These experiences are invaluable, not only to those directly benefiting from the student’s time, but also for the students themselves, as well as for the furthering of a more connected and cohesive community.

Kissing It Better

Kissing it Better charity is a partner organisation of all schools on our Warwick campus.

Its mission is to positively impact the lives of older people and those with chronic and terminal illnesses. Students from Year 1 all the way to Year 13 contribute their time to performing in hospitals and care homes to brighten up the life of residents or those who are terminally ill.

For example:

  • During the pandemic, when visits were not possible, students organised zoom performances and produced artistic material such as drawings and handmade games for hospitals and care homes.
  • During the Christmas period, gift donations are collected for children at the hospitals and Christmas cards made by the students are sent out to elderly residents and patients.


Pupils Voice Group

The Pupils Voice Group was founded at King’s High School and Warwick School due to students’ desire to have greater autonomy over their fundraising efforts and collaboration with local charities. 

Every school term, elected student representatives survey peers in their year group to nominate an organisation to be the focus of the school’s fundraisers. The group is also responsible for the creation of engaging fundraising events for their respective schools.

Past events have included bake sales, car washes, non-uniform and Christmas jumper days, and coffee mornings.

The schools’ collective efforts largely contribute to furthering the charitable impact of various partner organisations. For example, in 2022, Warwick School fundraised enough money to fund a new delivery van for the local food bank, enabling them to continue the pick-up and delivery of local donations.

Other organisations we’ve collaborated with include:

  • Oddballs Foundation
  • MIND
  • Helping Hands Community Project
  • Movember Foundation
  • Acorns Trust
  • Mary’s Meals
  • The Brain Tumour Charity
