King’s High Association of Parents and Staff

Affectionately known as ‘KHAPS’, our parent and teacher association provides a wide range of opportunities for parents to get actively involved in King’s High life through both social and fundraising events. Its aim is to promote close co-operation between home and school for the advantage and welfare of our students. All money raised goes directly back to the school in the form of donations for awards, equipment and support for the students’ charity projects.

Haggis, neeps and tatties were recently enjoyed at our first ever Ceilidh, kindly organised by Mrs Watt and our amazing KHAPS committee. The Scottish pipe band and Ceilidh band were incredible, the dancing lively and energetic, and much fun was had by all. Our feet are still tapping!

Recent KHAPS donations have included: 

  • Personal Achievement Awards of up to £300 which encourage girls to pursue their out-of-school interests and realise their ambitions through wide range of activities
  • Sheltered dugout seating for spectators at the girls’ hockey pitches
  • Two King’s High portable marquees for use at sports event • Play equipment to increase opportunities for play at lunch and break times
  • Picnic benches for outside the School Dining Hall
  • Funds for the development of the Sixth Form Terrace
  • Funding towards an Art Exhibition
  • Leavers’ Certificates
  • Christmas crackers for students at the Christmas meal
  • Speech Day prizes
