We are always keen to hear from parents, teachers and pupils who have ideas about how the Parents Association should spend the funds that we raise. We don’t fund school equipment that we would expect any school to have or form part of the core curriculum. We most certainly do fund activities and equipment that enhance the life of the pupils at the school. For examples of where we have spent our funds over the last few years, have a look here.
Please do contact us with your ideas using this form:
Dads Camping has become more and more popular over the years and we have had to limit the numbers to the same as last year on the school’s advice for safety reasons. This year the event sold out in record time which has resulted in some disappointment.
Should you have any questions or no longer wish to attend the event, please contact us at email@example.com

PLEASE NOTE THE DATE CHANGE TO MINIMISE CLASHES WITH SATURDAY ACTIVITIES
This is your last call for bookings for the SHS PA Quiz Night this Saturday 4th March from 7.30pm.
PLEASE NOTE that bookings need to be made before Friday 3rd March via the link above.
What’s the format? It’s run in the style of a ’round table’ pub quiz, but it’s so much more than that too! Last year we had rounds featuring pictures, music, maps, word puzzles and even tasting food! Who knows what’ll happen this time…?
Is it difficult? You don’t need to be a quiz genius – with such a wide variety of fun questions, everyone gets to take part in the fun. Last year, only 10 points separated the winning team from last place, so everyone’s in with a shout at the star prize!
How do we form a team? You can have up to 10 people per team. If you’re an individual or couple wanting to play, you can buy your own tickets and we’ll put you on a team to keep things fair.
Who’s hosting? As per last year, the quiz is being written and hosted by David Bodycombe (one of the SHS Girls’ Prep dads) who’s a professional TV producer and question setter. So, you’re in safe hands!
What else is on offer? There’s a bread, cheese and fruit platter per table included in the ticket price, and a cash bar is available throughout the evening.
Look forward to seeing you there!

A reminder of the next sale coming up the first Saturday after the children go back to school next term.
If you want to sell clothes and other games equipment (e.g. hockey sticks, tennis racquets etc.) then please go to here for full instructions. You keep 60% of the proceeds and the remaining 40% goes to the PA to raise funds for SHS events and extras for the children. You can leave your items in ANY reception and they will be collected and given to us to sort out before the next sale.
We have had several requests to sell ski clothes and equipment at this Winter sale so please have a sort through your lofts and bring in any items which your children have grown out at the same time. This is a new venture so it may take a while to build up stock but we need to start somewhere!
Items can be brought in on the day of the sale but if it is busy we can’t guarantee they can be sorted in time and they may need to be left until the next sale in April.
If you can offer any help to sort out the clothes before the sale on the afternoon of Friday 13 January or at the sale on Saturday 14 January then please contact Katrina us here.
Finally, often parents ask if there can be more sales than one a term. It does take a lot of time and effort to put on each sale so we have limited the number of sales which are held. However, if there are some parents (especially in the Prep schools) who would happily take on the responsibility of holding extra sales each term we would love to hear from you!
If the paper tickets don’t work for you then you can order your raffle tickets on line but this does reduce the proceeds that the PA get.
