Parents & Carers

Parent Teacher and Friends Association

The Parent Teacher and Friends Association, a registered charity, has been in existence for many years and works hard to support the staff and the students.  All parents and carers with children at the school are automatically members of the PTFA.

Parents and carers are encouraged to join the PTFA committee and help organise a number of events during the year which raise funds for the school. We would welcome any offers of support or new fund-raising ideas.

The PTFA need parents to actively support fund-raising events by: 

  • Managing pre-loved uniform sales
  • Assisting with serving refreshments at various events
  • Running the PTFA quiz
  • Helping to run the 11+ exam and practice exam
