All parents or guardians of pupils attending the school automatically become members of this parent-teacher association, which is a registered charity. The Executive is elected at the AGM in the Autumn term. The Friends work extremely hard to support the school in many ways, raising funds and giving us their time. They organise sponsored events, car boot sales, auctions, pupils’ discos and evening entertainment. The annual Christmas Market raises a lot of money. We have also held successful joint events with the PTA from our linked Junior School such as the annual Summer Fair, quiz nights and family discos and barbeques. The money from these is shared between the two schools.
All money raised is used to provide facilities and equipment that would not normally be provided out of the school budget.
