Parent and Teacher Association

The Parent and Teacher Association (PTA) is a partnership between home and school.  It is an excellent way of bringing staff, parents, guardians and friends together to work towards a common goal of enhancing the students’ experience at the school.

The PTA is there to support students and the school and fundraising events include:

 

  • The 100 Club (details below)

  • Providing refreshments at School Productions, the town Firework Display and Parents’ Evenings

 

In addition to raising money to support and enhance students experience at the School, these events are a great opportunity to get to know other parents!

  

Over the years the PTA has been able to provide a whole range of items for the school. On occasions it has funded a particular item or made a donation towards a specific project. Some of the items the PTA has funded in the past include:

 

  • Outside seating for the Sixth Form Centre

  • Rugby kits

  • Display cabinets for the James Tate Building

  • Six benches, two boot cleaners and a notice board for the pavilion

  • Entry fee for the Year 11 Girls Indoor Hockey National Finals

  • iPads for the PE Department

  • Lego for the Lego Club

  • Refurbishment of the piano and purchase of a clavinova for the music department  

  • T-shirts for the Richmond School students taking part in the Race for Life

  • Leotards for the Gymnastics Club

100 Club

 

The 100 Club is a convenient way of helping all students in the School.
For just £25 per year your unique number is entered into a monthly draw for 3 prizes worth £50, £25 and £10. The 100 Club runs for twelve months from September to August.  You can enter the 100 Club via the Parent Pay Shop, the Richmond School Online Shop  (follow the quick link on the School website).
