Recent Events

PA 'Back to School Day 2019' 1 July

The most hilarious fundraising event.

Returning by popular demand from parents and staff alike we are holding a second wonderful chance for parents, grandparents and friends to, drum roll please........


We lay before you an unmissable opportunity to refine the mind and energise the soul in one of the world’s finest educational establishments – Pate’s Grammar School.

Up until now, you have only experienced the Pate’s Life in a vicarious way through your children. In return for a £50 donation, you can now walk through those gates for real.

In keeping with the phenomenally successful Back2School day in 2017 (where we raised more than £3,000 for Making £nds Meet) you can sign up for a manically busy whole day at school which will include:

  • History with Mr Ellicott
  • English with Mr Allinson
  • School dinner in the refectory (using your child's "finger" account)

Plus three other lessons and lunchtime club.

Please see below pictures from last time which included lunchtime singing with Miss Lane, Games in the Gym, plus Science and IT classes.

We know it's mad.  Are you in?!

Your place can be booked through Year 8 mum and PA stalwart Anna Macey-Michael at (payment to follow by direct transfer, or cheque).

Last time the event was so popular it will have to be first come first served this year as we are limited on numbers, so do not delay.

PS: Dresscode:  I think we all know what correct uniform looks like ... do your best.  Some larger sized blazers are available in the second hand uniform shop, for those wanting to go the whole hog! It was amazing to see how much effort everyone put in last time!
