The PTA is a small but dedicated group of Forest parents and staff representatives who hold fundraising and support activities for the school to assist with the provision of resources and equipment and the upkeep of facilities. Recent purchases have included microscopes for the biology labs, GCSE and A level textbooks and practicalities such as new window blinds, plus a significant contribution to the redevelopment of the school swimming pool. We are a registered charity.
Fundraising activities over recent years have included quiz nights, car boot sales and cake sales. We are often to be found running a refreshment stall or bar at school events such as concerts, awards ceremonies and open evenings and also occasionally when the school hall is hired for an event by an external party.
We have accounts with Easyfundraising at https://www.easyfundraising.org.uk/causes/forestpta/ and The Giving Machine at https://www.thegivingmachine.co.uk/causes/forest-school-pta/ which we encourage all parents to link to while shopping online, in order to raise donations for Forest at no personal cost.
PTA meetings are held on the first Monday of each month during term time in Forest 6 at 6.30pm. New members are always welcome – please get in touch if you’d like to join the committee or to offer occasional support throughout the school year.
