The aim of the Pembridge Hall Parents’ Association (PHPA) is primarily to enhance the girls’ overall experience at school and bring an extra dimension to school life that benefits the whole school community. Part of this involves raising awareness of the chosen PHPA charities and involving the girls in fund raising opportunities.
We accomplish this by organising a calendar of events throughout the year. Parents are given a remit and organise social activities accordingly. For example the Lower and Middle/Upper School Christmas Parties, the Middle/Upper School Spring Disco, the Head’s Quiz Night/Candlelit Dinner and refreshments at Sports Day as well as other events throughout the year.
By engaging with the school in such events, we hope to promote and cement the triangular relationship of girl, parent and teacher that The Head believes is so crucial to life at Pembridge Hall.
The PHPA chooses a selection of charities to support during the year. At the end of each term, 10% – 20% of the proceeds of each Second Hand Uniform Sale are donated to charity and the rest is used to subsidise the above events. After each fundraising event, 100% of the profit is donated to charity. Please refer to the charities section of this website.
Lastly, we hope to facilitate communication between the parents and the school with regards to social matters. The PHPA Committee meets twice termly and the minutes of these meetings are distributed among all parents in the hope of creating greater clarity.
The prime focus of Class Reps is to support and raise support for the social events and to communicate with the parent body on behalf of the PHPA
