As part of our activities we raise funds to provide ‘extras’ which enrich the life of the Academy and which would otherwise be beyond the reach of the school budget. For example, providing prizes for an award, supporting Academy trips, or contributing towards improvements of the buildings and grounds.

Use your creative skills in a practical way by getting involved in events such as the Winter Fair, Spring Raffle, and serving refreshments at Parents’ Evenings. We also sell second hand uniforms prior to each PTA meeting.

Come along to our meetings to share your ideas and help plan some amazing future fund-raising events. Meetings are held monthly during term time. You will find details on the school calendar and a general reminder is e-mailed to parents a week prior to meetings. If you would like to be added to our emailing list, please contact the school office with your email address.

Easy Fundraising

This website allows big companies to donate to charity when you shop with them online. You can find us there under Abbey Grange PTA, and naming us as your cause means that we receive donations at no cost to you. Thank you very much for supporting Abbey Grange PTA.

The PTA 100 Club

100 Club members have a chance to win £50 in our monthly draw. There are 100 numbers in the draw and the cost is £10 for a year's membership. Please login to Parentpay to purchase your 100 club number. Your number will be emailed to you via school. Draws take place at monthly meetings  


The PTA runs a refreshments stall at Parent Consultation Meetings and Open Evenings to provide tea, coffee and soft drinks for students, their families and the teaching staff.

To make this possible we need lots of volunteers. We work in small, friendly teams and it's a good way to get to know people. If you would like to help selling refreshments, please leave a message for the PTA, with your contact details and email address with the school office.


We always need pre-worn uniform donations, winter fair donations such as teddies/toys/books/games/toiletries/cakes and buns. Please give these to the school office. Thank you
