Southcote Parents and Friends Association


The Southcote Parents & Friends Association is a group of enthusiastic parents and staff members, set up to raise money and support the school with events & projects that will enrich the school-life of all the students at Philip Southcote school.


Here are the core committee members:

Chair: Libby Turner

Secretary: Tabitha Chisnall

Treasurer: Victoria Fearnley


Current PFA goal:

Giving the pupils some much-needed outdoor seating and equipment to keep them happy and busy at break times!


Updates on Southcote’s ‘100 Club’ Lottery:

We managed to sell 70 of the 100 numbers, so this means we have to adjust the amount of the winning prizes accordingly. As promised, we will still give back 1/3 of the takings as prizes with the schedule below. Here we will also publish the lucky winners as and when the draws take place (during school assemblies)!

Exciting news:

The PFA has successfully registered as a charity (#: 1180299), so this means we can now take part in fund-raising opportunities that are only open to registered charities!

More good news is that the PFA (recall we only started in April 2017) has now raised over £10,000!!! What an amazing achievement that is, so thank you to all who has helped us do this!
