The BPS Society is an important part of the school, formed of the school’s community and friends. It organises social events and fundraising activities such as coffee mornings, quiz nights, Christmas fairs, summer BBQs and school discos.
The BPS Society is open to all and is a great way of meeting other parents, socialising and forming stronger links with the school. All that is needed is a little commitment – even half an hour’s help can make a big difference – and a sense of fun. Please contact us if you can contribute in any way. It would be very much appreciated.
Class Representatives play an important role in matters relating to school life and school development. There are usually two parent Class Reps per year group. They provide the vital link between the class, the school and the BPS Society. They meet with the Headmistress or Senior Leadership Team every half term to discuss matters relating to school policy, structures and operations. This is a valuable opportunity for the school to address parents’ questions on everyday matters and for the school to consider parental views across a variety of matters such as teaching, content of the syllabus, school trips, health and safety and school events.
The support from the Class Reps is also appreciated when it comes to organising our main events as well as more informal ‘get-togethers’ for parents such as coffee mornings or evenings out in the Altrincham area.
NB. It is not the role of the Class Reps to address sensitive or personal matters. In this situation, parents are advised to speak directly to the teacher of the class/subject or to phone Mrs Makepeace Taylor (Head of Lower School), Mrs Walsh (Deputy Head and Head of Lower Juniors) or Mrs Hughes (Head of Upper Juniors).
