The PTA consists of a group of dedicated parents and supporters of the academy, we arrange fundraising events for pupils and their families and the local community with the aim of raising money to benefit the academy and provide activities for the educators, pupils and their families to enjoy together.


With our help the academy is able to purchase additional recourses which enhances the facilities available for our children. This additional support helps to nurture our children to maximise their learning potential whilst broadening the school environment.


It is also a forum for parents to obtain knowledge and voice their opinions about what is happening in their school.

“The PTA enhance our ability to deliver extracurricular experiences and fund projects that would be restricted by the constraints of the school budget.”
