School Association

The School Association consists of a group of parents and teachers from the school who get together to raise money to help the school fund either activities or equipment for the children.

We meet regularly to discuss and plan fund-raising events.

We are always looking for new parents to join the team; if you are interested, just have a chat with an existing member or see Miss Jolliffe. 

The Association is a registered Charity under the title Sherborne St John School Association, registered number 1038635.

How You Can Help


Several of the biggest fundraising events that the School Association runs throughout the year can only happen with the additional support of parents. The Summer Fete and Christmas Fair both need additional people to help man the stalls. Please check your newsletters regularly to see what’s coming up and how you can help.


Each of the events that the School Association runs has one major goal – to raise money for the school in the most enjoyable way we can. Please come along, take part and have fun – and know that by doing so you will be directly helping your children’s education.


You may have a particular skill that you think we may be able to utilise so please let us know. If you work for a large organisation that you think may be interested in supporting the school again please inform us. Raffles and prizes that happen throughout the year can only take place using donations of prizes and money from local companies, organisations and benefactors. If you are able to contribute something (or know someone who can), then we would love to hear from you.
