Parents' Forum

The Allerton Grange Parents' Forum is an excellent opportunity for parents to get involved and contribute to many aspects of the school. It was launched in May 2015 and has grown to over 50 parents. We meet on a regular basis at the school and refreshments are provided. New members are always welcome; if you would like to be involved, please contact the school to be added to the mailing list.

Please see the calendar below for our events during the 2018/19 academic year.
