Parents and Friends

Parents and friends association

Our parents and friends association organises social events and fundraising for pupils, parents and staff. Over the years, the PFA has made a significant difference to the school by raising money for the ‘extras’ that really enhance school life. The PFA also runs 2Kit, the used uniform shop.

Some PFA events are fundraisers while others are just socials. All are fun, so please join in! Always feel free to suggest new events and keep coming back to this page for the latest PFA news and information.

If you’d like to volunteer to help organise an event, please contact a member the team.
