Parents & Friends Association
The Parents and Friends Association, or PFA for short plays a vital role in supporting the school by raising funds for projects that enhance and enrich your child's life at AGSB. The items we fund are considered carefully so that the money raised supports them not just academically, but socially and mentally too. Investments so far have been large and small, from £13,000 for the Show My Homework App to new clocks for the exam rooms, as well as an ongoing commitment to supporting mental health awareness at AGSB by funding guest speakers and supporting mentoring programmes.
Your son will be at AGSB for 7 years, so in addition to raising funds, our many events including fairs, curry and quiz nights, international evenings and many more allow parents to get to know each other as well as the AGSB staff. This year the PFA have also set up WhatsApp groups for Year 7 parents developing crucial links between parents and school and creating a real sense of community.
The PFA is a fantastic and fun way to meet and work alongside other parents and staff, with the aim of raising funds to support our pupils in whichever way we can whilst they are at AGSB. The more we raise, the more we can help! Please do support us.
