FRIENDS OF CHEPSTOW HOUSE WAS FORMED BY THE PARENTS of Chepstow house school students IN 2011. WE ACT AS A BRIDGE BETWEEN THE TEACHING STAFF, PARENTS, CHILDREN, SELECTED CHARITABLE ORGANISATIONS, AND THE LOCAL COMMUNITY.
We run activities through the year including seasonal celebrations such as Santa’s Grotto and the all-important Summer Fayre as well as a variety of fundraising activities to support our selected charities. We also host social events for parents to build and grow our parent community including regular coffee mornings, cocktail evenings and holiday get togethers. We also coordinate social activities for children such as sleepovers, kids quiz nights and more. As well, it is our goal to help enrich our children’s lives by helping them understand more about the world and the communities in which we live.
With the 2017 school year we also introduced a new buddy system for any parents joining CHS outside of the traditional Reception start. We pair new parents with existing parents to help international parents navigate the sometimes confusing British education system, and all parents understand the ins-and-outs of Chepstow and sometimes just for advice on life with kids in Notting Hill.
