Friends is your PTA. We strive to make a difference and we need your support to help us.
Every parent is automatically a member of Friends and currently the majority of our funding is provided by subscriptions, supplemented by Gift Aid as we are a registered Charity. We use those funds to support a wide range of projects. In the pas they have included a climbing wall, the Prep Department Library Bus, Sports and extra-curricular equipment, a new 3D printer for the DT department, steps down to the sports pitches, a Laser cutter, Year 6 Leavers hoodies, prizes, awards, cups and a new Girls Rowing boat.
Socially we arrange a variety of events every year from Bacon Butty Fridays, Quiz night to Christmas Wreath making. Our ’End of Term-ly Tea’ is timed to make sure Boarding parents who come to collect their daughter scan join in too and we are always hope to new ideas. Friends is an opportunity to connect with other families, put faces to names, get involved (as much or as little as you like) and to help make a genuine difference. If you can’t join us in person we are always open to linking you up via Zoom so you can join in the conversation.
You can also join us on our Facebook page where we shall ensure all news is posted!
Friends meet twice a term to plan events, allocate funding and discus any other issues which arise. All of our meetings are informal and friendly and everyone is welcome!
