Parents, Teachers & Friends Association
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 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, MacMillan Cancer Support and the Rainbow Trust.
Nearly New Shop
The ‘Nearly New’ shop sells a wide variety of good quality second-hand uniform and is open monthly. 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).
N.B. this has moved to the Main Prep Building.
