The AHSA is Aylesbury High School’s parent-teacher association. We’re a very active and sociable group of parents that gets together once a month to organise social and fundraising events for the school.
Over the years we’ve raised thousands of pounds, which have been used by the school to buy a range of specialist equipment that has helped enrich and enhance the students’ educational experiences. Last year alone the school bought:
- visual display monitors for the Art, Textiles and Food Technology departments
- musical instruments
- training programmes to extend the school’s sports options (Cardio Tennis)
- a state-of-the art sound system and new stage curtains for the Harding Hall.
But it is not all about raising money! Through our activities, we’ve made lots of new friends and had a great deal of fun along the way! As parents and carers of AHS pupils, you’re automatically members of the AHSA so we’d love you to join us. Here’s how to get involved:
Become an active team member
To get the most out of the AHSA, come and join our monthly meetings. We meet in the Meeting Room near Mr Rosen’s office on the first Tuesday of the month at 7.30 pm.
Offer a pair of helping hands
If you don’t have time to join our meetings, look out for our monthly emails where you can sign up to help at one of our events, provide cakes for sale or offer donations of raffle prizes.
Take part in our Monthly Cash Draw!
For a one-off £20 payment each September, our Monthly Cash Draw offers you the chance to win a cash sum every month from October – July.
For 2017/18, 305 parents paid to enter the Draw raising an amazing £6100! With half of the proceeds donated to the School and half divided up for ten monthly prize draws, this means every month the winning prize money is £305!

“The AHSA provides great support to the school by organising highly enjoyable events that raise much-needed funds, which make a significant difference to the students’ education.
From spectacular end-of-year proms, discos and film nights for the girls, to Christmas fayres, magnificent May Balls and quiz nights for the whole school community.
Their contribution is invaluable!”
