Senior Parents' Association



The Association is made up of enthusiastic Kent College parents who are appointed to the Committee annually and who meet formally at least once every school term. The Committee includes a Chairperson, Secretary and Treasurer, and seeks to have representatives from parents of each school year.

The KCPPA is a registered charity and aims to develop an effective relationship between the staff, parents and others associated with the school. The Association also raises funds through events for 'school extras' to enrich the lives of the students and which support the school's development.

All existing and former parents, whether they have been a part of the Parents' Association or not, are invited to become members of the 'Friends of Kent College' Association, which enables them to stay connected to the school even if their daughter has left.

Fund-Raising Events

The Committee arranges a series of events to raise funds for facilities and equipment for the school which complement and enhance those provided by the school itself. These events are also an opportunity for the school to celebrate the students' talents as well as for parents to get to know one another. While they include fun events such as balls, fashion shows, quiz evenings and flower workshops, they also include lectures by outside speakers on topics of social importance, such as anger management, as well as experiences of personal achievement to educate and inspire both parents and students. Other parents who are not on the Committee assist in these events and their contribution is invaluable to the running of the Association.
