Parents’ Association

The BGSPA are an informal and friendly group of parents who enjoy dedicating their time and talents to the school. Over the years, it has made a significant difference to the school by raising money for the ‘extras’ that really enhance school life.

For Parents

Our Bradford Grammar School Parents’ Association (BGSPA) organises social events and fundraising for pupils, parents and staff.

The PA Constitution

Some events are fundraisers while others are just socials. All are fun, so please join in! Always feel free to suggest new events, and keep coming back to this page for the latest BGSPA news and information.

The main aim of the BGSPA is to foster good relationships between staff and parents. Every parent in the School automatically becomes a member. We encourage everyone to get involved and join in with the various events and get-togethers. It is an ideal way of meeting other parents and being involved in the life of Bradford Grammar School. In addition, through the funds we raise, we support projects that benefit the school community. We encourage the staff and pupils to “bid” for funding and support. Recent examples are the Pass On Plastics (sale of Chilli Bottles) scheme; subsidising the transport for the whole of year 7 on their PGL trip; purchase of Orienteering Equipment.
