Kings is delighted to announce that it has bagged £4000 from Tesco’s ‘Bags of Help’ community grant scheme.

Bags of Help is run in partnership with environmental charity Groundwork, and sees grants raised from the sale of carrier bags awarded to thousands of local community projects every year. Since launching in 2015, it’s provided more than £40 million to over 9,700 local community projects.


Work will now begin on bringing the project to life, with money invested into improving the sound and lighting elements of our Dramatic productions. The school production at Kings College is one of the biggest extra-curricular activities we offer. The production is open to all students, developing a wide range of skills such as confidence, musical performance skills, costume design or lighting, and sound technical skills. The school production plays a vital role in developing our school’s sense of community within the context of the wider local community, by bringing families together and offering experiences that may otherwise be unavailable to local people.


‘We are over the moon about winning the grant from Tesco. The impact this will have on our students’ experience of theatre will be extensive and will last for many years benefiting both the community of Kings and the local community.’ Maria Vogler, Drama Teacher at Kings College.
