CNSA exists to support the school and enrich the education of the students by:

  • Raising funds and arranging events
  • Developing positive relationships between parents, staff and the wider community.

 If your child is at CNS, you are automatically a member of CNSA. 

 We organise events such as quiz and chips nights, the summer Fest and refreshments stalls at other school events.  Students are involved in suggesting how to spend the money we raise.  Recent funding projects include: more picnic benches and bins for outside areas, footballs for use at lunchtime, water bottle refill stations, an eco car kit, sixth form bike racks and T-shirts in house colours for Year 6 induction week.  We have been given lots of ideas for more fundraising, so please do support us to help raise more funds.

Thank you to everyone – students, parents, staff and others – who performed, helped out or came along to the CNS Fest last Saturday.  We had a fantastic turnout, and although we’re still waiting for some expenses to come in, we’re delighted to report that the Fest raised in the region of £3000 – £3500!

CNSA had already agreed that we will spend money next term on portable floodlights, to enable sports clubs to continue after school throughout the winter.  And students will again be given the opportunity next year to make suggestions for how money raised by CNSA at the Fest and through other fundraising can be spent.

If you’d like to get involved with CNSA next year to help plan and run future events to raise funds and bring the school, parents and community together, then please get in touch by emailing [email protected] – we always welcome new people getting involved.

Thank you for your support,

The CNSA team.
