Parents' Association

Bablake Parents' Association is an established committee that meets informally twice each term

Our Aim

Bablake Parents’ Association was established to promote the educational development of Bablake students. This is achieved through fundraising and developing relationships between student, parents, teachers and all those associated with the school. One of the main roles of the Parents’ Association is to organise events which all members of the school can take an active part in; these include: Theatre Nights, Family Quiz Nights, OBNO (Out Grown but Not Outworn) and our annual Christmas Fayre. The Parents’ Association supports events organised by the school, lending a helping hand at Open events, New Parent information days, the Shell Olympics and the School’s Christmas Carol Service.

We hope that through the organisation and support of all events we can strengthen and develop the school community. In order for us as an organisation to fundraise, we need the ongoing support of parents, friends and family of all those associated with Bablake. If you would like to volunteer to take part in our events please complete the Registration of Interest form, email the Parents’ Association at or alternatively contact Reception at the Senior school, Junior school or Pre Prep.

The Parents’ Association meetings are held each term in the Community Room, next to the Senior School’s main dining hall. The dates for all our events and meetings are published on the School Calendar.

The 200 Club

In conjunction with the events the Parents’ Association organise the PA run The 200 Club. Family and friends can choose one or more of the 200 numbers available. Your number(s) are entered into a monthly prize draw from September to June each year. The First Cash Prize for the draw is £40 with a Second Prize of £20 and a Grand Cash Prize of £200, drawn at the end the year. The annual subscription to join is £10.
