Parents Association

WELCOME FROM THE PA COMMITTEE                            

Welcome to all Maidstone Grammar School parents from the Parents’ Association (PA) Committee.

The committee is a team of parents such as yourselves elected to keep the PA on the move. 

By the very fact that you are a MGS parent you are already a member of the PA, a registered charity. A copy of our registration certificate can be viewed here.

Our aim is to do what we can to advance the education of our children by providing and assisting in the provision of facilities for education at the School – this means lots of fundraising which in turn needs lots of volunteers and support.

Our aim is to keep you informed of our fundraising activities and to make it as easy as possible for you to volunteer to help at school events. 

Always feel free to email us with ideas, suggestions, offers and thoughts.
