Our PTFA is a relaxed organisation which aims to give parents/carers and the college a friendly and informal connection.

Joining in with PTFA events and coming along to meetings is an excellent way to get to know the staff at your child’s school. It also gives you the chance to meet and chat with other parents.

A secondary school doesn’t need the same type of involvement from parents as a primary school but the PTFA is still very valuable to this college. We hold up to six short meetings a year and if you cannot attend meetings you can stay in touch with events by joining our email list.

To support the college we help out by serving refreshments at the Parents’ Evenings, Carol Services and other events. If fundraising is required we will work with the departments and students to organise events such as the very popular Fun bingo and quiz nights.

To support parents we have hosted ‘parents voice’ events where the college can get the opinions of parents/carers on particular issues. We have been consulted on issues such as uniforms and the ‘house’ systems in the past.  Future events are planned to offer information evenings on areas that parents may find helpful eg internet safety and emotional wellbeing but any ideas for topics are welcomed.

You would be most welcome to any meeting or event, with no pressure to commit further.
