Parents' Association

Click here to down the latest edition of the PA Newsletter

The Parents' Association for Bancroft's School is a well established element of school life. The broad aim of the Association is to enhance the already outstanding environment in which our children work towards academic success and develop as individuals. The Association runs various events during the school year to provide funds, which we then distribute by way of equipment, events and provisions which complement the activities of the School.

The Association is made up of Committee Members each of whom take responsibility for the direct organisation of one of the events run or supported by the PA and/or hold one of the officer posts. These members attend regular meetings to discuss future events and to support the event managers within the group. Events could not be run, and would not be successful, without the support of the co-opted members who contribute by providing direct support at the events without the requirement to become a full member.

The PA publishes its own newsletter, which is sent to all parents via e-mail and can be downloaded from this page.  We hope that this will become a regular way of keeping everyone updated on what's going on.

The money raised at the Christmas Fayre (£4,000) and at the Burns Supper (£3,500) means that the PA has already reached its fundraising target of £7,500 for a makeover of the Prep School library.  Thank you so much for the generosity of all parents.  The Quiz Night in October raised £2,000.
