The school’s extensive outreach programme reflects a commitment to sharing our resources with the local community and a strong belief in the benefit of educational partnerships. A unique feature of King’s, it fosters an ethos of social awareness and respect for difference.
The programme has three main strands: the co-ordination of the Wimbledon partnership, consisting of King’s and seven maintained secondary schools, a broad range of reciprocal arrangements with Coombe Girls’ and Boys’ Schools, and an extensive programme of community projects with local schools and institutions in which most pupils participate at some stage of their school careers. King’s also benefits from an overseas partnership with Fiwila School in Zambia.
Many members of King’s contribute to the programme, from governors to pupils in year 10 and above. It is run by the director of partnerships and two assistants, the leading edge co-ordinator and over thirty-five members of staff. The unique depth of our involvement with local educational institutions, reinforced by the engagement of staff and pupils at all levels of the programme, makes King’s a leader in the field of educational partnerships.
