Hazlegrove Stories

More stories

Parents at Hazlegrove play a significant role in life at Hazlegrove. 

In addition to being supportive and interested in their childrens' education they are able to get involved in other areas of school life at a level that suits them such as:

  • Supporting sports matches at home or away
  • Watching concerts and plays
  • Attending Friends' events, coffee mornings, boarders' parents' tea or the men's breakfast club
  • Participating in the activities organised for parents such as tennis, fitness, pilates, running, netball and golf
  • Getting involved with the Friends of Hazlegrove either on the Committee or helping run specific Friends events

The Friends of Hazlegrove

The Friends of Hazlegrove represent all pupils, parents and staff currently at the school.

Friends' events run throughout the year – a great way to meet others…and to have some fun. The proceeds from any events held are given to specific projects within the school or to charities of special interest.

Friends' Activities

The Friends also help to co-ordinate the activities for parents.  These include:

  • Fitness classes
  • Barrecore
  • Pilates
  • Mixed martial arts class
  • Tennis

For more information on these activities please enquire at the school office or ask your year group rep.

Friends Events

Various events are coordinated through a committee made up of parents from all Pre-Prep and Prep School year groups.  The Friends are always looking for extra help with events – so do, please, volunteer if you would like to get involved. The committee rotates on a regular basis and new members are most welcome.

If you have any suggestions or feedback, please contact a member of the committee via the school office or via your year group rep.
