Sir William Borlase's Grammar School


Giving your time and skills to the school is invaluable; it provides us with additional support that will enable us to continually improve Borlase. Donating your time means we benefit from extra resources and utilising your skills provides us with the experience we may not have available to us.

We are grateful to all parents and alumni who volunteer their time to sustain and develop the success of the school. There are many ways you can play an active role as a new parent, ensuring we have an engaged parent community, which benefits the students, parents, and future generations who come here.

There are more details about ways you can help below, whilst we also welcome ideas and offers to help in other areas of school life.


A Class Representative is a parent who volunteers to represent the interests of the parents in their class and, where needed, provide vital feedback to the school. Class Representatives are instrumental in keeping parents in contact with one another and providing a social network with their form group. Class Representative meetings are held in school once per term.


Volunteering to become a Year Representative is a fun and satisfying way for Old Borlasians to stay in contact with their old classmates and to reconnect with Borlase. Reunions are amazing journeys down memory lane!


Can you only spare short bursts of time? Borlase runs a variety of events throughout the year for its community. These range from music concerts, drama productions, dance shows, and alumni reunions. Help is always appreciated from setting the event up, running the bar, handing out programmes, or helping to tidy up after the event.

We would also love to hear from anyone whose company or business could provide event sponsorship or an auction prize.


Be a volunteer for our Masterclasses programme, a Careers Mentor, or help with mock interviews.


If you have green fingers and a bit of free time, we would love to hear from you!
