Parents & Friends of Netherhall


Welcome to Parents and Friends of Netherhall. We are a group of parents who set up a new Parents and Friends group at the school in September 2017 and are keen to involve as many people as possible. Our aims are to build and support a school community whilst also raising funds where possible. We are registered with the PTA UK and now have a small committee voted in at our first AGM in 14th March 2018. We had a busy year hosting a variety of events and setting ourselves up as an organisation to support the school. Check out the school Newsletters and look out for Parentmail emails for information.
