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
