Friends of Hamilton College

Friends of Hamilton College is an association of parents, staff and friends who have a shared interest in the active support of Hamilton College.

What do we do?

Focus on our common interests.

Represent parents' views to the Senior Leadership team and Board of Governors on issues of concern to parents and pupils.

Improve links between parents and the school, encourage parents to be involved with the Friends, create social occasions within the school community, report back to parents on our work.

Educate - support academic excellence and our children's all-round development through promoting parental involvement in our children's learning.

Network and connect the school and parents effectively to ensure that information is available when needed and that the Senior Leadership team and Board of Governors get feedback on parents' views.

Discuss and advise the school on issues of interest to parents, such as school policies in areas like bullying, sexual health and relationships, education, homework and school uniform.

Support the school on a wide range of issues such as school improvement visits and the recruitment of senior staff.
