End of Year Update

£12,000 raised thanks to your support!

We have successfully completed our first full year since the pandemic, back in person – and it feels amazing! It has been brilliant to see you all at our events, supporting the PTA and our amazing school. We are incredibly grateful for your support.

This year we held several pre-loved uniform sales, Christmas raffles, a hilarious Bingo Night with award winning comedian/cabaret artist ‘Aidan Sandler’, a fab Quiz Night where the winners were decided by just two points and a fantastic Summer Fair – you can see more photos here – that saw the biggest turnout ever for a PTA event and raised over £7,000.

The fundraising target set for us by the School this year was to raise £20,000 for the new library – an incredibly ambitious goal, and more than twice what we’ve been asked for in previous years. We didn’t quite get there, but we did raise an amazing £12,000 with your help.

The school managed to borrow some funds to complete the library on time – it’s pictured below – and we’ve given £12,000 to the school this week to pay off more than half of that cost.

The new library!

So thank you for supporting our events this year, and for all your donations – and a special thanks to those who also volunteered their time to help at our events. The PTA Committee is a small team of only seven parents and we simply can’t run all our events without your help – the more volunteers we have, the more we can do, and the more we can raise for the school.

We are already planning our events for Autumn, and if you can spare even half an hour to help us at one that would be greatly appreciated – the dates are all below, please do get in touch!
