Parents’ Association

Bancroft's Parents' Association, with the support of the school and parents, organises various events throughout the school year to raise funds.

A fun-packed start to the academic year was the much loved Welcome to Bancroft’s Magic Show and Party for the Alpha and Beta children.

In November 2022, the PA hosted our largest fireworks event to date, with over 1000 members of the Bancroft’s community in attendance. With fireworks, funfair, food and merchandise stalls, it was a fantastic,fun-filled, family event thoroughly enjoyed by all. Like previous years, it was another sold-out event!

The Removes (Year 8) Disco, was a new event hosted with the kind assistance of staff and proved a super success.  The whole of our Removes year came along and sang and danced the night away with their friends. It’s a welcome addition to our events line up, and was thoroughly enjoyed by the children.

For the last two years we have held a Spring Fayre instead of our traditional Christmas Fayre. The children took a very active role by running stalls and with performances by the melodious Prepettes.  A performance by The Morris Dancers was thoroughly enjoyed by the audience.

The Summer Camping Weekend was a great success last year, so do put the date in your diary now:  from 5.00pm Friday16 June to noon on Sunday 18 June at Lambourne End.  You will be able to book a Glamping tent option – where everything is set up for you and you just turn up, or you can choose to bring your own tent. If staying overnight is not your thing, then come along for the day and enjoy the activities and festival vibe.

Every year the PA also supports various events for the pupils , for example;

  1. Contributions to the 5th and Upper 6th Leavers’ Proms
  2. Prep 2 Leavers’ Party
