Bootham School Association
What is the BSA?
The BSA is a non-profit making organisation which organises and encourages opportunities for friendship, fellowship and fun for its membership.
Run by a voluntary committee comprising parents, staff and old scholars, the association also helps to promote and support Bootham School, helping at open mornings, welcome events for new parents, and at other events in the school calendar. In addition, the BSA runs a programme of social and sporting events where members are able to use the excellent facilities available throughout the school.
BSA Junior is the Junior School part of the BSA. It has a separate committee which organises events and activities taking place on the junior school site. For more information please click here.
How do I Become a Member?
All parents and guardians of current Bootham School pupils (Junior and Senior) are encouraged to be members. There is an annual charge of £5.00 per family which is added to the invoice for the autumn term. Families not wishing to be members should advise the Bursar. Funds are used to help with the running costs of events and activities. Funding of special projects by the staff and children is also supported.
What is the Discount Scheme
Each family is given a numbered BSA Membership Card. Certain businesses in York give a discount on goods or services provided to BSA members on production of this card. To see a current list of participating stores and businesses in York please click here. This list is reviewed annually and sent out in September. If you would like your business to be included, please contact the Chair.
