Prep School Parents

Prep School Parents

The Parent Community at the Prep School can be, if you wish to engage, an absorbing and full experience. Besides the usual parent teacher consultations there are many opportunities to mix with other parents at matches, performances and social or fundraising events organised by The Friends.

The Friends

When children join our school, their parents are welcomed as members of the Friends organisation. Parents, as members of Friends, work tremendously hard to support the work of the College in providing social and fund raising opportunities that enhance the children’s overall school experience.

Friends also offers families a great chance to make new friends. Most recently, the Friends have organised a fundraising Christmas Fair, May Ball, Summer Fun Day and for the enjoyment of pupils, School Discos. Money raised during these events has funded a sail sunshade for the Prep School library, an action camera for extra-curricular activities and trips, wigwams, a sensory garden for the Pre-Prep and has contributed towards the establishment of the Pupil Council. For more information, please contact the Friends Chairperson, Kaff Booty, on 07979 374664 kaffbooty@gmail.com, or refer to the Joining Information booklet.

Match Days  

These are special and numerous in the Prep School. Lower and Upper Shell parents will receive letters with match details in advance. All other pupils look at the Games Notice Board the day before the match day in order to see if they have been selected and to note down pick-up times and other relevant details. Team Lists and details of start and pick up times after matches can be found by following the login link for Prep School Teams on the College website. Your username and password can be found in Joining Information pack.

Helping out

There are also opportunities to help out with school events such as the Festival of Literature and at Open Mornings and reading with pupils in the Library.

As with the College Community, we aim for the parent community to be as inclusive and as supportive of our pupils as possible.
