Parents’ association

Gillotts Parents’ Association aims to support the school by raising funds for special projects and by creating a supportive community of parents around the school.

We have recently funded a new all-weather shelter for the students, raised funds for the purchase of 30 Raspberry Pis and new gym mats for the PE department. The PA also provided the school with its two mini buses.

We warmly encourage all parents join us. Whether you just want to hear about social events, are happy to help out every now and again, or you’d like to join the committee and get involved, we would love to hear from you. Please feel free to drop in to our next meeting, listed below.

To join our mailing list or for any enquiries please email

You can also join our Facebook page – just search for Gillotts Parents Association and ask to join the group. You will not only hear about events, but also about school news and successes that your children may forget to mention!
