Next PTFA Events:-
Spring Fair – Saturday 6th May
Our mission is to organise a variety of events throughout the year for parents, their children and sometimes for the whole family. Raising funds is one of our aims, but encouraging parents to come along and enjoy the events, meeting up with friends old and new, is our top priority. We also run non-event fundraisers such as recycled clothes collections and Christmas cards.
Committee members meet approximately three times per term to plan events and discuss how funds raised should be spent. In the past we have organised events including the Christmas Fair, the Summer Ball, race nights, Ladies’ evenings and discos for the children.
We have most recently raised funds for a new £10,000 Zip Wire which is a major investment for all the children to enjoy for many years to come. Other items purchased for the school include spectator benches, new hockey goals, netball post protectors, a PA/tannoy system, trestle tables for the gym and stage lighting. We have also donated money to Charities including Midlands Air Ambulance, The Woodard Langalanga Secondary School project in Kenya, North Staffs Carers Association and the Rainbow Trust.
Coffee mornings are held two times per term after drop-off and all parents are warmly invited.
The ‘As New’ shop sells a wide variety of good quality second-hand uniform and is open every two to three weeks. It opens in the morning at drop off times (8.15-8.45am) and then again in the afternoon at pick up times (3.15-4.45pm). NB this has moved to the Main Prep Building.
