Welcome to the Beths Parents’ Association (PA) web page

What we do

The PA is here to help fund facilities and equipment for your children that the school budget is unable to provide.  We raise funds through various activities such as Quiz Nights, selling refreshments at Parents’ evenings and concerts, Christmas and Summer raffles, monthly draw and own clothes day.  On average we raise £8,000 to £10,000 a year.  We have used these funds to buy equipment for the Year 8 Camp, supply gym equipment, books for the Learning Resource Centre and various instruments for the music department.

Who we are

Chair – Vacant (due to child leaving Beths this year)        Vice Chair (and acting Chair): Trudie Nichols

Treasurer: Andrew Sealey                                                            Vice Treasurer: Oluwasanmi Obafaiye

Secretary: Sue Cross      

Our annual general meeting (AGM) is held in October each year.

Our meetings

We meet monthly (during term time) to discuss fundraising activities and requests from the school. Meetings are always held in the school (usually the Conference Room) and start at 19.30 usually finishing around 21.15.  Here are the meeting dates until the end of the school year:

Tuesday May 8th @ 19.30

Tuesday June 12th @ 19.30

Tuesday July 10th @ 19.30

We need your help

The PA cannot function without the help of parents and carers.  So if you can spare some time to help serve refreshments or in any other way please let us know.  We are a friendly bunch so why not come along and join us, and we promise you can be as involved (or not!) as you like.

If you need any further information or just want to find out more please contact us by e-mail at  beths.parents.association@gmail.com or  through our Facebook page – search for ”Beths Grammar Parents Association“
