A warm welcome from the PTA! Here’s what we do.
Our main role is raising money to support the school to buy things for the pupils that the school wouldn’t be able to buy otherwise. We are currently funding the installation of a Creative Studio for the Art Department. Before that, we donated £100,000 to the Sports Hall fundraising effort, and paid for a 3D printer, the canopy for the outside courtyard and lighting and sound systems for the hall.
We raise this money mostly by organising events for parents (such as Quiz Nights and Race Night) and for the pupils (Christmas Bring and Buy, Year 7 & 8 Discos, Easter Egg Bingo), which are both fundraising and fun social events. We also run our monthly prize draw, the 100+ Club, as well as a Christmas Raffle.
PTAs thrive with participation by parents, and we would love you to get involved. You can buy tickets for our current events here, and if you want to get involved with running things, or helping out, email us. New faces are always welcome.
Get in touch – our email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for your support.
Additionally, Mrs Wybar and Mrs Marchant are joint presidents and Mr Speller is the staff representative.
New people are always welcome!
Everyone will want to support our PTA in different ways. We’re trying to raise money to support the school, so money is always welcome, but so is time. Please support us in whatever way you can.
You can come to the events
All the profit goes to the school, so buying tickets helps. And the events are good fun to go to.

This is a low-effort way to help. Donate money to the school by standing order and enter the monthly cash prize draw.

The school’s second hand uniform sales are run by the PTA . We usually have a good stock of all uniform, summer and winter, including PE kit.
If you would like to purchase uniform, email your requirements to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We rely on donations, so if you have any uniform which is in a good, clean and saleable condition, please leave it at school reception and we will collect it.
Joining Easyfundraising is one of the easiest ways that you can support the PTA, at really minimal effort and absolutely no cost to you.
Sign up at Easyfundraising, and follow the instructions, nominating TWGGS PTA as your cause. You then shop at your normal websites, and if those sites are partnering with Easyfundraising, every time you buy something, Easyfundraising gives TWGGS PTA a percentage of your purchases. Sometimes it’s only 0.5%, but sometimes it’s as much as 13%. It all counts. And it’s at no cost to you.
They have over 7000 partners, across a whole range of sectors, like Sainsbury’s, Expedia, M&S, Sweaty Betty, BT Broadband and Just Eat. So there’s a good chance that if you sign up and buy anything online that TWGGS will benefit.
So please go ahead and sign up.
