Main Content

Bishop Perrin School Association is run by the parents and carers for all of the children at the school. Our aim Our aim is to raise funds in an inclusive and fun way so we can provide extra financial assistance that directly benefits the school and children….and we do more than just cake sales!

How has the School Association benefited the children? Each year we receive a wish list from the school for items they would like us to purchase for them and financial assistance in other ways to enrich the Children’s lives through school. In 2016 we raised an amazing £23,000 and the children benefited in the following ways: A new perimeter fence that made the school more secure and a more welcoming place. New books to ensure the children have access to the latest books to accelerate their reading and learning. Subsidised school trips so they are affordable for all children to attend, these trips enhance children’s learning and bring learning to life.

Who we are: The School Association is jointly chaired by 2 parents: Rebecca Hards Elizabeth Poulter Ross Poulter

Other parents have volunteered for the following roles: Treasurer: Fiona Gaydon, Assistant Treasurers: Nathalie Rocha and Charlie Twigg, Secretary: Cathryn Tillekeratne, Charity Team: Claire Trew, Sarah Corney, Rachel Arney, Rene King, Pavi Chandrasekaran.  Plus we have many class reps for each school year.  We also have many parents volunteering at our events…but we always need more as we can’t run the events without help!
