Welcome to The Fernwood School PTA.

As a Fernwood parent you already form the very important ‘P’ in PTA… so why not come along and get involved!  We’re proud of our PTA here at Fernwood and welcome your input however great or small.

Our main aims are;

  • to encourage closer links between home and school – our monthly meetings help facilitate this two-way communication
  • to fundraise – we have helped to provide our students with extra resources and equipment including the smart board in the library, sports mini buses, covered walkway, we also support the annual Design Day, … and there’s much more!
  • to provide opportunities for social interaction – our fundraising events provide an opportunity for parents and staff to get together strengthening the bond between home and school.

During the 2016-17 academic year the PTA raised funds which will all go towards projects for the school.

The Annual Wine-Tasting Evening (held in April) was a great success… raising £644 the evening was more than a little entertaining!! (think wine drinking rather than wine tasting and you’ll have a better picture!). The hall was transformed with laughter as our panel of ‘experts’ entertained – it was a great night.  Demand for tables has never been higher… tickets sold out in record time, and we can’t wait for 2018!  Contact for more information and to reserve your table.

The first Fernwood Fashion Show raised over £400 and was deemed a huge success by all who attended.  Special thanks to our very own Top Model Mrs H!

The PTA ‘pre-loved’ uniform was sold at the new yr7’s transition day in July and at the pop-up uniform days during the summer holidays with amazing feedback from parents. We’ll be looking to hold further sales as our ‘stock’ grows! (Please donate any quality, clean school uniform to the PTA).

PTA members continue to support the school by serving the refreshments during the various school functions and productions including Christmas Carol concerts, January’s performance of Bugsy and the summer Variety Shows.


We’re looking for other ideas for 2017-18 fundraising calendar which will bring parents, pupils and staff together, as well as raise funds so the PTA can continue to support all the Fernwood children.

Do you have any fundraising ideas?  Would you like to know a bit more about the PTA and how to be involved? Don’t be shy – please email us We welcome everyone’s input, however large or small.
