About Us

We're a friendly group of parents and teachers who organise fundraising events throughout the school year, to provide the children with the extra things a school budget doesn't cover. We meet on a regular basis to plan, critique and discuss new ideas. If you'd like to help with any aspect of this you can contact us on the details below.


Our bigger events raise a substantial amount of money and on average we generate roughly £10,000 in a school year. We think that's pretty good going and realise that without the continued support of the parents/carers and the wider community this would not be possible. 


2017 to 2018 - We raised approx £15,500 and used the money to help buy a new Computer Suite!

The PTA money was used to buy us BRAND NEW Computers!
