College Friends

The Friends support the Pre-Prep and Prep School sections of the College by raising money and then spending it on great things which benefit the children. We have great fun doing both of these things, so everyone is happy. 

We organise:

  • School Photos in September – smile please!
  • Welcome Coffee Mornings – Hi! to new parents.
  • Christmas Disco – very noisy and very popular.
  • Christmas Fair Pre-Prep - buy one and one for the dog and three for yourself!
  • Christmas Fair – sweets, toys, books, sweets, raffle, cakes, games and more sweets.
  • Hollywood/Bollywood Night - an excuse to eat the nations favourite food and then dance off the calories.
  • May Ball – dress up in your finery and dance the night away - sell out every time.
  • Summer Fun Day – best day for children in the school calendar (in our humble opinion).
  • Parents’ Quiz Nights – pit your wits in teams or just pitch up for the Fish and Chips.
  • Bars at Plays & Displays – beer, wine, cocktails & ice-creams. Would you like a flake and sprinkles in your beer Sir?

Fun Day

The Friends meet approximately twice per term to decide how to direct any profit from all this fun. If you want to meet people and lend a hand, we would love to see you. The meetings are held in the Prep School Library, the dates and times are advertised on the notice boards and in the News letters.

We appreciate for some people to be a full committee member may be too much of a commitment, so we are also trying to create a list of people, both Mums and Dads, who are prepared to help with key events such as the Christmas and Summer fairs, serving drinks at class evening activities etc. If you feel you may be able to spare a few hours per year to meet other parents and lend a hand, please let us know.

If you are interested in finding out more about the Friends of Pre-Prep and the Prep School, please contact our Chairperson, Louise Taub or our Vice Chair, Kaff Booty.  Alternatively, call the Pre-Prep Office on 01279 838626 or the Prep School Office on 01279 838607.
