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.

PTA Meetings 2016-2017

Join us in the school staff room from 7-8.30pm

(walk through reception and turn right through the double doors, the staff room is the first door on the left!)

News and Information – PTA : Raising funds for Fernwood’s future

During the 2015-16 academic year the PTA raised more than £6,400 which will all go towards projects for the school.

The Annual Wine-Tasting Evening (held in April) was a great success… raising £790 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, with 100 in attendance it was a great night.  Demand for tables has never been higher… tickets sold out in record time, and we can’t wait for 2017!

October 2015 saw the final All Night Disco – and we ended an era of the ‘A.N.D’ in style!  With more than £5,600 raised the children all had a great fun night.

We held our first ‘pre-loved’ uniform sale at the new yr7’s transition day in July 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 February’s We Will Rock You and the summer Variety Shows.

The future

We’re looking for other ideas for 2016-17 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.
