Celebrating the King’s Coronation at School

Celebrating the King’s Coronation at School

There are not many moments in history like the coronation of a new monarch in this country. And with the extra bank holiday, there is a chance for the nation to celebrate the occasion. However, how your school will celebrate the King’s coronation can be vastly different from other schools. Here are some ideas for you to consider.

Hold a Coronation Lunch

While the day may be a bank holiday, there is no reason why you can’t celebrate the coronation with a special lunch. You can have some special food made in the kitchen or ask children to bring in picnic food and celebrate outside, under the school canopies, or on the field.

Coronation events like this can be a great time for the children to celebrate and you might want to make more of the time with games and celebrations.

Art, Poetry, or Story Competition

These kinds of events are always a great time for creative people to step forward and commemorate them. Poetry or stories are a great way to do this and you can create a competition for the event too. If you’re looking for a way to inspire children, offer prizes for the children.

Those who are artists might also want to get involved.

You can improve the competition, by exhibiting for others to come and see the creative flair of your students. Get children, family, friends, and staff involved.


Host a weekend fair for the coronation that can include exhibits, rides, games, and more. There are lots of options here that can make a great event for you and your children. An event like this can also be a great way to raise funds for the school or a local event.

Organising a fair like this can take a lot of time. However, you can get help from local businesses who can offer their services or provide refreshments/games/entertainment. With the special event on the weekend, there are going to be lots of businesses that will want to get the best results.


The King’s Coronation is going to be a great, special event. However, there is not long now to plan your celebrations. So choose carefully what options you want on the date and get organising.
