PTA

Welcome to King Edward VI School PTA. The PTA is made up of parents and teachers from the school with the main purpose of raising funds to support projects that will benefit students. We meet approximately 6 times within the school year in Bader Bistro, with meetings starting at 7 pm.

We are always keen to see new parents at the meetings.  If you are not able to make the meetings but would like to help out, either on a one-off or regular basis, we would love to hear from you.  Any suggestions, ideas or questions can be sent to kingedwardspta@gmail.com. If you have a particular skill or company that you think could help the PTA, please do let us know.  Whilst the PTA committee currently comprises a dedicated team of parents and staff, the future of the PTA is very much dependent upon us keeping the flow of new members coming through as parents step down when their children leave the school. If you feel you want to get involved, please email the PTA or come along to a meeting. Thank you for your ongoing support.


February 2018 Update:

Following a successful Christmas Fayre, the PTA are delighted to have now committed £2,000 towards the cost of a new PA sound system in Bader Hall (approximate cost £8,000).  Fundraising towards this continues.

The next full meeting of the PTA is on Tuesday 6th March at 7 pm in Bader Bistro; all welcome.

We also have a Quiz night on Friday 9th March at 7 pm (see poster).  We would love to see as many of you as possible at this fun adult social evening – money raised will go towards the new PA sound system.

As you are aware, the PTA have launched a lottery in partnership with Your School Lottery.  This is proving very successful – if you haven’t already, over the half term holiday, why not sign up to this great new fund-raising initiative – it only takes a minute to register.  It costs £1 a week and you get chance to win at least £20 in a weekly draw as well as being entered into a weekly draw for £25,000!  Why not ask friends and family if they’d like to support us too!

Help us raise money while you shop!

The PTA is currently working with the school on the Building Fund Appeal which aims to raise £100,000 by 2018 and which will be used to undertake much-needed building maintenance and improvement work around the school site.  We would like to increase the number of parents who are signed up to Easy Funding raising to 500 by September 2018 to help raise money towards the Building Fund Appeal.
