Parent Teacher Association
Welcome to the Rugby High School PTA page. Thank you for taking an interest in who we are and what we do.
The aim of the PTA is to raise money in a fun and sociable way and to provide the school with extra funding to spend on equipment and resources to enhance your child’s educational experience. In recent years we have raised funds to fund Operation Theatre Live, bought extra-curricular resources for Drama & English, and bought a new kiln for the Art Dept; just to name a few.
Every parent/carer that has a child at Rugby High School is a member of the PTA. Some parents/carers are more actively involved than others, but all help is always greatly appreciated by the committee members.
The PTA AGM was held on Monday 9th October at 6.30pm at school.
Update on recent PTA fundraising
The PTA had a busy end to the last academic year with two big fundraising events.
The Summer Fayre at the end of June raised a total of £2,140 that will be put to good use funding extra-curricular activities for your daughters and sons at the school. Thank you to all who participated in our popular tombola and bought drinks and snacks at our stall.
In addition, our outgrown but not outworn school uniform sale in July raised a total of £1,193. Again, thank you to all who supported this sale, as well as those who donated items of outgrown school uniform for re-sale.
Look out for the date of the next PTA Meeting
Meetings are friendly and informal and usually last for about an hour. Please join us and support our fundraising activities; the PTA exists to enrich the learning experiences of all our daughters and sons attending Rugby High School.
If you are a parent who can spare a few hours to help with fundraising, have a particular skill that you would be willing to ‘donate’ to the PTA or work for a company that would be able to match-fund our fundraising activities, please get in touch with us at email@example.com.
PTA School Uniform Sale
We hold School Uniform sales of outgrown, but not outworn, school uniform sale with the most recent taking place in July 2023. They are an opportunity to make huge SAVINGS by buying good quality pre-used uniforms for your daughter and play your part in raising money for the school.
All proceeds go to the PTA which provides funding for academic and non-academic related activities for our students.
