PATCH (Parents' and Teachers' Association of Chandlings) was formed by a group of enthusiastic parents and teachers to promote a sense of community and belonging amongst everyone involved in life at Chandlings Prep.

They aim to support the school and help families make the most of their time here, primarily by organising events for parents and children. All parents, guardians and staff members are automatically members of PATCH. We take particular care to welcome new parents to the school, and aim to have a representative from each form to organise informal get-togethers and to be a voice on the PATCH committee.

Social events organised by PATCH take place every term.  These range from Coffee Mornings to Christmas Bazaars, Quiz Evenings to Summer Balls and many other events for parents and their children.

The PATCH committee is made up of a group of form representatives and the following officers:-

Chairperson Jane Davis Secretary Natasha Sheppard
Vice Chair Stacey Birney Charities Emma Bott
Treasurer Richa Sachdev International  Abi Miles-Conlon
New Parent Rep Catherine Pyke Committee Members

Catherine Wilde

Annie Broadhurst

Rebecca Turner

Lucianne Obinna

Teachers Reps - Fiona Love and Phillipa Biggs
