Welcome to our PTA

Every school has some form of Parent Teacher Association and St Hugh's is certainly no exception. Whether you have been associated with the school for many years , or are a brand new family joining our wonderful community, you will very quickly appreciate how active and inclusive our PTA is.  We are fortunate at our school to have a PTA that is and has been an integral part of the school community for over 30 years. In its time the PTA has raised tens of thousands of pounds, which has been spent on equipment and resources to enhance our children’s education experience and the school’s facilities.

Our PTA is about much more than simply fundraising.

The PTA exists to provide closer links between home and school and it is an excellent way to bring staff, parents and friends together socially in support of the school, working towards a common goal.  It is fun too - just ask any of the hundreds of parents who’ve helped out at PTA events over the years, and with the continued support of parents and staff, our PTA will continue to succeed in its efforts.

Each parent is a PTA member when your child starts school. Without your support, your PTA would not be able to achieve what we do.

So, welcome to you all !
