Friends of Chesham Grammar

The Friends of Chesham Grammar School is a registered charity with the objective of supporting our school, helping provide a stimulating and pleasant environment for our pupils.  We work closely with the staff and governors to provide additional resources and improve facilities through fund-raising.

The Friends of Chesham Grammar School is a PTA (Parent Teacher Association); it is a link between the parents/carers and staff within our school with the common aim of wanting to create the best possible learning environment for our students that stimulates, nurtures and encourages their development both academically, socially and personally.

The principal role of The Friends is as a fund-raising body to organise events and activities to broaden the scope of educational experiences available to all students at the school by helping put the 'cherry on the cake' in our school.  Every parent/carer with children at our school is automatically a member of The Friends and benefits from the funds raised through the events organised by the committee and the wide range of club activities and social functions.

Our fundraising

We raise money by holding events.  The Spring Fair is the biggest of these.  We also hold an annual dinner dance with auction, Christmas Fair and Quiz night.

We also have ongoing money making schemes which we call 'Donate for Free'.  One of these, Shop-Smart Fundraising, involves no cost to you but can potentially raise substantial funds.  More details are available in the Forms section.
