Adcote has an enthusiastic Parents Association (The Friends of Adcote) which compliments the close knit family atmosphere of the school.
The Friends of Adcote aim to bring the school’s families together in a wholesome and nurturing spirit in numerous different ways, whilst fundraising to enhance the teaching and pastoral facilities of the school.
Friends of Adcote
Recently the Friends of Adcote have funded a trim-trail, floodlights for the netball courts, projectors, new playground markings, ‘Animal Man’ for the Junior Department, cameras for the Drama Department, Video editing software for the IT Department and much more! We also sponsor the annual Bonfire event and provide refreshments for the girls and their families. Our annual Ball is the highlight of our calendar and is always well attended and supported.
The ever growing Friends association help arrange events that happen throughout the year, including Discos, an Easter Egg Trail and the Sports Day Pimms Bar. Any support is welcomed and invited no matter how small. Any parents are very welcome to come along to our ’Friends of Adcote’ meetings. They are fun, social evenings so if possible, bring along a bottle and some nibbles. We look forward to welcoming you!
