Devonport High School for Girls

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. The PTFA needs parents to actively support fund raising events by: 

  • Managing smart second’s uniform sales
  • Assisting with serving refreshments at various events
  • Running the PTFA quiz
  • Running the shopaholic events 
  • Help with invigilation for the 11+ practice exam

In previous years money raised by the PTFA has helped to fund the lease of a school minibus, parent workshops and IT equipment for the Maths and Art department.

There is a small but active committee including a Chair, Secretary, and Treasurer amongst others. 
Meetings are held twice a term in the evening at 7.00pm in the Sixth Form Centre, and last about an hour. These meetings are open to all parents and new faces are very welcome.
