The SWANMORE PARENTS’ ASSOCIATION (SPA) is YOUR association and your link to the college. We would love you to become involved in some way.

What do we do?
Our sole aim is to raise money to support the college and pupils.  We spend all the money we raise for the benefit of the pupils’ education and to provide those extras that are not always possible from the college budget.

Who can be involved?
Everyone!  Members of the Association are ALL parents, all teachers, all governors as well as past parents.  Other friends of Swanmore College may also be members.

You don’t need to be on the committee to help
Our committee is a group of volunteers who offer whatever level of support they can to organise fundraising events and decide on how the funds are distributed for the benefit of the students.

We always welcome fund-raising ideas to meet the many bids we have from college departments, so if you have any suggestions – please email them to us [email protected] and we will put them before the committee for consideration.

You can be involved in whatever way you wish:  become a member of the committee, add your name to our list of helpers, support the events that we hold, donate raffle prizes or services you may think we can use.  We are grateful for any time you can spare.

History

The Swanmore parent association is a registered charity. It was re-established in 2009.

We have our AGM typically in October each year.  This is a great chance for you to find out more about what we do, meet (in fact vote for) the committee and offer some input.  We would REALLY like you to mark this in your diaries now and come along.  Look out for the date on the College Calendar.
