What is the PTFA?

We are a group made up of Parents, Teachers and Friends of the school who meet regularly to discuss fundraising events, drink coffee and eat biscuits.

Why do we fundraise?

We have fundraised in recent years for the Uganda Team trip, Non Fiction resources for the library, Software for foreign languages that has helped not only with the subject but also students that have English as an additional language and have just moved to the school and “Science Live” dissection day, helping with subsidising ticket prices for students.

How do we fundraise?

Some of our fundraising activities have been:

  • Christmas Fayre
  • Beetle drive
  • Assisting our local Rushden Round Table with their Santa Collection
  • Northants Inline Roller Hockey Club hosted an event for the Uganda Team trip
  • Easter Egg Bingo
  • Refreshments at Parents evenings
