Parent and Friends Committee (P&F)

Message from our P&F President

Welcome to our P&F, we are delighted to have a healthy and engaged group of parents and friends interested in shaping and contributing to our P&F committee. We meet every six weeks and find our meetings to be most enjoyable, covering important issues / questions, whilst also being social forum and a real opportunity connect with other parents / friends of our School.

As a committee, we have endorsed a Terms of Reference which outlines our agenda / purpose as a committee which is available on this website for your perusal.

All parents and friends are genuinely encouraged to contribute to our committee, either through membership, or by the raising of Agenda items you wish us to discuss on your behalf

Richard Clift
