Abbey Gate College has an active Parents, Teachers and Friends Association (PTFA). It is an integral part of the school community. Over the years, they have raised money for the school for those "nice to have extras” that benefit all pupils and supported the school’s chosen charity for the year.
The PTFA is not just about fundraising; as well as being great fun, it is an excellent way of meeting other parents, staff and making new friends, all with a common goal of supporting and enhancing school life and that of our children.The PTFA supports the school with such events as Open Day, Sports Day and New Parents evenings, as well as arranging social functions such as coffee mornings, wine tasting events and the College Ball. The Committee always welcomes new members, with the only requirement being some of your time and lots of enthusiasm! We also have a helpers list for those people who are able to lend a hand during the year.
Whether as a Committee member or 'helper', assistance of any kind is gratefully received. If you would like more information please contact the team on PTFA@abbeygatecollege.co.uk
