Links with the Community


Parmiter's has close links with both National Mencap and the local Watford Mencap, including the hosting of the following events at the school: 

The Watford Mencap Activity Club takes place every Monday in the Sports Centre, run by volunteers from within our Sixth Form.

Mencap Easter and Summer schools - three weeks of activities hosted by Parmiter's school

Mencap Games, held at the school every year, which helps with social inclusion, improved quality of life and leads to further involvement.

Disability Netball Club

Hertfordshire Netball Association have set up their first Disability Netball Club for Young People with learning difficulties at Parmiters School.

Breakspeare School

Our Music department and Design and Technology department both have close links with Breakspeare School, a special school for children with learning difficulties.  Groups of disabled children are invited to Parmiter's School to participate in activities with both of these departments.  Our musicians also take part in musical events in conjunction with the students from Breakspeare, including an annual carol concert.

Volunteering and Charities

A large amount of charity fundraising takes place within the school in a co-ordinated manner across all year groups.  Students are encouraged to come forward with their own ideas for fundraising.

There are charity collections at the end of a number of school events, including the Carol Service and Pantomime.

A large number of Parmiter's students volunteer their time to support charities.  We run a Community Service Programme, which involves students in voluntary activities in local schools, charity shops and Old People's Homes.

For many years, Sixth Formers from Parmiter's have helped on a regular basis at the Abbots Langley Monday Club, which provides a social club and activities for adults with learning disabilities.
