PSA

Poole Grammar School has a lively and thriving Parent Staff Association which works to support and enrich the life of the school.

Who are the PSA?

All parents and carers of boys at the school are automatically members of the PSA but we also have active volunteers and a committee.

How does the PSA raise funds for the school?

We raise funds by organizing events throughout the year such as:

  • Quiz nights
  • Musical suppers with the school’s Big Band and Jazz Band
  • The Summer Extravaganza

We also provide refreshments at various school functions throughout the year such as the Carol Service, music and drama events, the Old Grammarian’s Supper and parents evenings. The PSA also helps with sales of second-hand uniforms.
