ASPA – Connecting Parents, Supporting School life
You may have danced or dined at a whole school event, stocked up at the Second-hand Uniform Shop, quizzed against other parents or perhaps you’re about to meet up with fellow parents and your year group reps. Either way, as an Abingdon School parent, you’re automatically members of ASPA (at no extra charge).
With your support, we’re pleased to be able to support the parent community and to help towards school life.
We use ClassList as a means of direct parent to parent contact. When you received registration information from the school you will have consented (or not!) to allowing ASPA permission to contact you with details for being invited to join the ClassList community and therefore giving you access to contact details for other parents in your son’s tutor group, year group or House year group. If you have not received this invitation to join ClassList, and you wish to do so, then please contact Clare Coombs at email@example.com.
Please note ClassList is used by ASPA only for parent to parent contact. The School does not use ClassList for any communication to you nor do they monitor Classlist.
In addition to parent to parent communication ASPA, over the years, have achieved the following…
- Thousands of parents have come to ASPA organised events over the years and interest in the new and different events being run continues to grow!
- Over £100K has been donated to the Partnership Programme (previously the Annual Fund) since 2011 which is largely thanks to the number of events supported by parents.
- Each year, a group of boys are recipients of the OA and ASPA Travel Awards, helping towards the cost of overseas experiences, usually involving research or charity work.
- The Second-hand Uniform Shop has raised tens of thousands of pounds in recent years and includes the donation of the Yamaha Grand Piano now living in the foyer of the Amey Theatre, as well as the Merlyn Bowling Machine used by cricket players.
