It’s been a great year for the PTA with lots of events well attended and supported throughout. We would like to thank every single person who has been a part of the success we’ve had this year.
Together we have raised over £22,000.00 this academic year!
This is AMAZING!
There is a full breakdown of the items the PTA have funded this year further down.
The importance of the PTA next year is greater than ever. With cuts to the schools funding they will be looking to the PTA to help and support them on practical, educational matters and costs, which previously could have been included in their budget. It is therefore imperative that we make a success of the events we run and make the most of the money we raise.
See the school calendar for future events and dates. We hope to add more along the way but have got some great things lined up already – put them in your diary now!
We can never have too many volunteers, so please come along and help where you can. Even if you can’t attend many of the events, you can help or just put your name down to support in the background.
We believe in making this PTA the best it can be, lets raise money and have fun too!
