Parents' Association Home

Welcome to the Parents' Association section of the STRS website. All parents, carers and guardians of present and past pupils of the school are automatically members of the Parents' Association. As PA committee members, we are all volunteers who support the school in a whole range of activities. These include managing the uniform shop, coordinating and providing refreshments and organising fundraising events.

The activities that we organise and the funds that we raise for the school are all dependent upon each of us as parents volunteering to provide the help requested. If you would like to help the school by getting involved in the Parents' Association in any way, please email the Chair on PAChair@strs.org.uk who will advise you further.

For more information about the activities we are involved in, click the associated link below or the menu bar:

We look forward to seeing you at future events.

The officers elected for the PA are as follows:

Chairman Corinne Goatley pachair@strs.org.uk
Vice Chair Elisa Jordan
Treasurer Sarah Cripps
Secretary Kerry Williams pasecretary@strs.org.uk
Additional Trustees - Charlie Smith and Mena Canning
