Friends of S. Anselm's

The Friends of S. Anselm’s is the name for our parents association who support the school in various ways.

The principal objective of The Friends is to support the school in the development of its facilities by co-ordinating various fundraising and giving activities, as well as maintaining the school’s links with Old Anselmians. We organise a number of regular events for pupils, parents and staff, including the Christmas fair, a quiz night, parents' Ball and other activities. Over the past few years The Friends have helped the school in many ways, large and small. The Friend’s Board meets once a term and is made up of current parents. We are:

Mark Twelves (Chairman & Parent Governor)
Rik Tarbatt (Vice-Chairman)
Steve Drury -
Rachel Ludlam Social Committee
Nerissa Formela Social Committee
Claire Goodear Social Committee
Mark Holmes Old Anselmians


We are supported by the Headmaster and the Bursar. We are very grateful to the wider group of parents and supporters who help The Friends organise all the various events; and we warmly welcome the involvement of all interested parents.

Giving to the Friends can be done in a variety of ways. We actively seek gifts and donations of all sizes through the Headmaster’s Annual Appeal. If you do not find the information you need, or are interested in naming opportunities in recognition of a donation, please contact myself or the Headmaster.

Thank you for your support!
Mark Twelves
