Friends of KVS

Welcome to the Friends section of the web site.
Did you know that each and every parent/guardian of a child attending Kennet Valley School is automatically a ‘member’ of the Friends of KVS? 
The ‘Friends’ is a brilliant way to bring staff, parents, and friends together socially in support of the school, working towards a common goal. The Friends are conscious of our school ethos, “one family learning for life on a journey towards our potential” so all our events are affordable and open to everyone to enjoy.
Our association is a registered charity (Charity Number: 1096828 ) and is about much more than purely fundraising. Some events make no funds at all but are designed to enhance the child’s experience at school.
We always welcome new ideas, money makers and friendship makers, whatever skills you have to offer, baking cakes, digging and weeding, climbing ladders, setting out marquees or doing the best BBQ around, we hope to see you soon.
