The King's School is reviving forgotten apple varieties to create what will become the largest orchard of unique varieties in the county. Last week, young horticulturalists braved wintry conditions to plant the first 40 trees at the perfect time in the season, at King's stunning new £60 million campus.
As part of UK Charity Week 2020, we wanted to shine a light on Legacies. King's was established through the legacy left by Sir John Percyvale in 1502 and has underpinned philanthropy at King's ever since. Former pupil William Hancock, has explained why he has left a gift in his will to King's.
As part of UK Charity Week 2020, former pupil Ambrose Mason (1969 leaver) tells us about his time at and after King's and why he has decided to contribute to the School's Bursary Fund.
Teenage environmentalist Annabel Townsend has been shortlisted for the Government-sponsored ‘Home of 2030’ Design Competition.
