Welcome to Queens’ Parents’ Association
When your child becomes part of the Queens’ learning community, you will have the opportunity to meet and join with other parents at Queens’.
WHY does Queens’ have a PA?
The Queens’ Parents’ Association aim to raise funds for the benefit of all students and staff, in order to provide the best possible resources and facilities for your children to enhance their learning.
The Committee usually meet on the first Monday of each month, to plan and organise events and review our finances. School departments put in bids for equipment or funding, which is discussed and (hopefully) agreed subject to sufficient funds having been raised!
Our main events during the year are a Talent Show, Quiz Night, hosting the Spire Hospital Bushey 10K and junior races, as well as Second Hand Uniform sales.
One of our newest and easiest ways to raise funds this year has been the easyfundraising website – More information here– which allows you to help us do more for the school without any effort of turning up anywhere! For anyone who shops on the internet this is your way of helping us.
If you are a parent or carer of a child at Queens’ School and are interested in joining the QPA please e-mail us on:
We are appreciative of all parents, family, friends and teachers who continually support our events.
In the past 12 months the QPA has contributed the following to the school:-
- 2 new Picnic benches for the 6th Form
- A specialist Sander for the Tech Department
- Classical and Electrical guitars restrung for the Music Department
- Netball shorts for all the Netball teams
Going forward, we are hoping to raise sufficient funds for 2 Concrete Ping Pong Tables for both North and South side.
If you work for any large organisation that may do a £for£ match fundraising please do get in touch as this can make a massive difference to the amounts raised.
We are very appreciative of all parents, family and friends that continually support our events.
