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 they raise funds by 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
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
