About the PA



The DCHS Parents’ Association is an independent registered charity run by volunteer parents.

We run events that help build the school community, and fund projects which will enhance the girls’ experience of school life. We also support events run by the school, such as Open Evenings, Certificate Presentation Evenings, and New Parents’ Socials.

There are lots of ways to get involved: come along to our events, or join a team to make one of them happen; buy a ticket for our lottery; or make use of the second hand uniform shop. Get in touch to find out more. Follow us @DCHS_Parents

PA team Meetings

Parents on the PA Committee meet once a month to plan events and to decide how the money should be spent, based on the girls’ requests. In 2015-16 we contributed £25,000 to the Courtyard Café and £13,000 to refurbishment of toilets. Our focus since then has been an exciting project to upgrade the dining facilities, for which we have already raised over £60,000. 

All current Challoner's High parents are welcome to attend these meetings which .
