PSA Welcome

Welcome.

Every single parent and carer of Ashmole children are members of the PSA. Parents can choose to be as active in the PSA as they choose and all levels of interest are welcomed.

In a small, one-form entry school such as ours, it feels particularly important that our school community is cherished and supported. We are committed to raising funds and arranging events for the benefit of all Ashmole children while building a thriving, supportive school community.

The PSA is a registered charity raising money to pay for school-determined projects that school funds cannot cover. We do this through fundraising, regular or one-off donations to the PSA and corporate sponsorship.

Any help with fundraising suggestions or securing sponsorship is very welcome. 

If you would like to know more or want to sign up to the PSA email list, contact AshmolePSA@gmail.com (no obligation attached!).

We'd love to hear from you. 

Jess Halstead (Chair), Olivia Coyle (Secretary) and Sophie Hunt (Treasurer)
