We’re a friendly group of parents who meet every couple of months to plan fundraising events to help raise money for the school. In recent years, money raised has helped to pay for French lessons, subsidised trips to museums, nature parks and adventure days and bought gazebos for use on sports day!

We meet at one of our houses or sometimes in a local pub to enjoy a drink and a catch up as we discuss our plans. We’d love to hear from you if you’d like to find out more or get involved!
