Welcome to the Parentsâ€™ Association (PA) page.
The aim of ÁñÁ«¹ÙÍø Boys Grammar School Parentsâ€™ Association is toÌýdevelop andÌýextendÌýrelationships between the staff, parents and others associated with the school and to advance the education of students through raising additional funds.
When your child joins ÁñÁ«¹ÙÍø, you, as parents, are also joining a community, and the schoolâ€™s Parentsâ€™ Association and Parentsâ€™ Council are at the heart of this.
The PAâ€™s activities are coordinated through meetings held once every half term plus the AGM in February, usually starting at 7pm in the library.
Everyone is welcome to attend these meetings.Ìý
Our meeting dates, time and location are published on the schoolâ€™s calendar (Click Here)
but if in doubt please feel free to contact the Communications Officer (Available Here)
We are on occasion joined by the headteacher, Mr P Lawrence, and deputy headteacher, Mr J Hunt, who come to the meetings to meet parents and respond to questions about school matters.
Refreshments are available throughout the meeting.ÌýÌý
