We are very fortunate to have a vibrant and dedicated PTFA – one of the few secondary schools in the region to still have such an important support network.

The main aim of the PTFA is to support the school community primarily by raising additional funds. The funding pressure on the school increases each year and difficult decisions on monetary allocations have to be made. But thanks to the fundraising efforts of the PTFA in conjunction with staff, significant funds are raised each year! These additional funds add to the educational and personal development of all our children. The PTFA funds resources and projects that the school would not otherwise have. 

The PTFA are always open to new members joining the team. Mums, Dads, Stepparents, Grandparents, Aunts, Uncles and more are encouraged to get involved and help to continue the fantastic work of the PTFA. Without the volunteers, there wouldn't be a PTFA.

One of the biggest events in the PTFA calendar is the Christmas Craft Fair which takes place in November – a perfect time for some Christmas shopping. In 2019, the event raised in excess of £8000!
