Big Night-In
to Feb 24

Big Night-In

Help us kick off the PTA’s fund-raising in 2018 by hosting a BIG NIGHT IN w/c 19th February.

Consider joining or inviting fellow parents, friends, neighbours or your year group to have drinks or dinner at your home to raise money for the Centenary Garden Fund.  Ask guests to make a small donation (for example £10 pp for dinner) or why not host a coffee morning, a brunch, drinks/tea party or a lunch instead?  

A great way to get to know parents in your Form/Year group better, beat the winter blues and perhaps celebrate the end of dry-January!

Help the PTA maintain this funding commitment and keep the project on track in 2018 by taking part in this initiative; a legacy project asked for by school to not only create something lasting to mark our Centenary year but also to improve infrastructure due to increased pupil numbers.  Thanks to your amazing support the PTA has achieved this in 2016 and 2017!

Register your BIG NIGHT IN with Alec Rattray or get in touch if you have any questions. We have chosen w/c 19th February as a focus but if that doesn’t work please feel free to find an alternative date.  Same applies to the venue! 

Thank you in advance for supporting our fund-raising efforts.  Please join us on 17th April at 7pm when we will be holding a Spring Drinks in the Centenary Garden (weather permitting) to update you and celebrate the project to date.

International Women’s Day (IWD) Discussion

Eventbrite - International Women’s Day (IWD) Discussion

Natasha Kaplinsky in the Chair

Exactly 100 years after the school was established and (some) women got the vote, there is still an urgent need to #PressforProgress. Lady Margaret School (LMS) is hosting a panel discussion around this year's IWD campaign theme on Wednesday 7 March from 6.30pm.

There will be lots for panelists to talk about. A very appropriate Centenary celebration theme. Research indicates ‘gender parity is over 200 years away'. Can we get there faster? We’d love to hear the opinions and views of our community. 

Join us at a time when the goal to achieve gender parity continues to gain momentum here and around the world. 

Everyone is welcome, so please spread the word. Ask family, friends and neighbours to come along and be part of a lively discussion. 

Put your questions to the panel, or simply listen to an informed discussion about issues important to us all.

Tickets £10 (+ Eventbrite booking fee) includes a glass of wine or a soft drink (with ticket). 

Students (aged 15+) Free But registration is required for entry and a free drink (with ticket).

Please join us for a drink from 6.30pm before the event starts at 7.30pm. 

All proceeds from the evening will go towards our Centenary Garden, created from voluntary contributions, for the benefit of the school and community. If you would like to hire the Garden for your own use, please contact

BBC Radio 4 Any Questions? Live

BBC Radio 4 Any Questions? Live


Eventbrite - BBC Radio 4 - Any Questions?



Any Questions? the popular BBC Radio 4 programme was first broadcast in October 1948.

As part of the school’s on going Centenary celebrations we are delighted to host a live broadcast of the programme from the school hall on Friday 4 May.  Doors open at 6.30pm. The event starts with a BBC warm up at 7.30pm before the live broadcast at 8.02 pm. Everybody over the age of 14 is welcome. Admission is free of charge but you must have a ticket to gain entry and be part of the audience 

Every week the programme visits a different part of the country with a panel of four speakers who answer questions from the audience. The programme provides the opportunity for people to challenge politicians, policy makers, writers and thinkers.

If you have a question you would like to put to the panel (yet to be announced) please remember you must be prepared to ask the question yourself live on air. Follow these instructions and bring your question with you on the night and place it in the Any Questions? box on arrival. 

The producers need questions from you to make the best programme, so please put in one or more. About the questions:

What’s been in the news this week or what’s happened today?

Questions chosen regularly touch on political, economic, social and moral issues of the day.

As a nationwide broadcast, national or international issues are most likely to be chosen.

Please keep your questions short.

Tickets will be available via Eventbrite from 23 March. Our Centenary celebrations are partly about welcoming the community into our school. This is a perfect opportunity to invite your family, friends and neighbours to an event held at the heart of the school. Get them to ask a question! The programme has all-age appeal and is free of charge.

You can hear Any Questions? every Friday at 20.02, repeated on Saturday at 13.10.

Any Answers? gives you a chance to join the debate by calling 03700 100 444 or emailing

Quiz Nite

Quiz Night – this is usually held in the Autumn term and is a great opportunity to meet new parents.  This is not an overly competitive night, for those of you who dread a Quiz, it’s a fun social where parents and teachers come together over a fish and chip supper to answer questions in various rounds.  Tickets are sold in advance so look out for the Parentmail flagging up the date and telling you how to book your tickets.  The PTA run a bar so it’s usually a lively social event and tickets sell fast.
