About SAPA

The Saint Ambrose Parents' Association (SAPA) is an excellent way to bring together the College's parents to raise money and to support the school.

All parents are automatically members of SAPA.  Our aim is to promote the College, forge positive links through enjoyable events and activities, and to raise funds to support and develop the school.

Since its inception in 1947 SAPA has raised over £1 million.   These funds have helped to pay for computer equipment, musical instruments, minibuses, cricket nets, sports equipment and the new swimming pool when the College was rebuilt in 2012.

Get Involved

To plan our events and fundraising, we meet on the second Monday of every month at 7pm, just for an hour. We also hold an annual general meeting in June. Please come along and share your ideas.

SAPA also has its own website with lots of information about the events and activities organised throughout the year.
