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 funded an 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, its table tennis table, ukuleles and guitars for music, and new benches for the Quad.
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 email@example.com
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!
Monday 30 October at 6pm.
The committee meet in room A1 in school – signed from by the barrier.
Everyone is very welcome to attend our Committee Meetings and we are actively seeking new Committee Members. Other informal meetings are held for ideas, planning & socialising in between these Committee Meetings.

Giving through School Fund:
Our School Fund is an opportunity for parents to support the quality of education for their children through making regular voluntary contributions to be used directly to provide resources for use in the classroom and at home.
Unlike many schools, Gillotts had not had a tradition of regular individual donations to support the school. However, as you will have seen from recent media coverage, the financial climate for all schools is becoming increasingly difficult. School funding has not been increased since 2010 in spite of steadily rising costs so in real terms, our income is falling. This is making it harder for the school to deliver the excellent teaching and learning we aspire to.
There is no obligation or pressure to donate but, if you would like to, we will be grateful for whatever you can afford.
The PA fully supports the school in striving to maintain a high standard of education for our children in the face of reduced income. Donating to the School Fund will be a way of trying to ensure that our children continue to receive the excellent standard of education that Gillotts at present provides. The School Fund is also a way for parents/ carers who do not have time to help with the PA to be involved with the school.
