How we spend PTA funds  

Each year the PTA aim to fund one major item (such as contributions to the school canopies, library, lockers and the minibus) as well as allocating £5000 to smaller  items requested via bids from Ecco Clubs, the school council and Department Heads. Following a review of all recent bids this term we have allocated £5000 as follows:

  • £1000 towards equipment for “Pop Up” Fitness Suite in the Drama Room
  • £450 for media editing equipment
  • £1000 towards a Deer Pedestal Band Facer – essential Technology equipment
  • £1232 for Sports Equipment (outdoor table tennis, popup goals, etc.) as requested by the school council to improve break and lunch experience which has resulted in noticeably less behavioural issues as boys are kept busy.
  • £1318 split between a visualiser for Business/Economics and the Maths Department towards purchase of laptops.

We hope that your sons will benefit from one or more of these items
