The PTA at The Wilmslow Academy arrange a variety of social and fundraising events throughout the year. These events help to support the school by enhancing the pupil's educational experiences. The PTA events can really make a difference to your school and we are always grateful to the pupils, their families, and parent volunteers for coming along to support the PTA events.
The PTA is for any parent who would like to get involved and make a difference to the school!

What we've been up to in 2019/2020
The PTA has proudly supported the following this school year:
New School Hall Sound System
The PTA is proud to announce that we have helped the school to purchase a new sound system in the school hall! This new system includes surround speakers and a new sound tower that will ensure all of our assemblies and performances sound amazing! Thank you to all of the people who help support our fundraising efforts so we can continue to buy necessary equipment like our new sound system for the school.
The Reading for Pleasure Initiative
The PTA is proud to announce that we will be supporting the Reading for Pleasure school initiative. This initiative aims to refresh each class library with new book titles! Every term for the next year, the PTA will be contributing £900 towards buying new books for the school as well as a commitment to fund every term in 2019/20.
Students will have the opportunity to recommend and vote on the best books to include on the book lists. New books sponsored by the money earned from all of our PTA events will be soon circulating among students - look out for the sticker on each new title!
Thank you to everyone that supports the PTA, PTA events, and to all Parent, Teacher and Student volunteers that have made this initiative possible.
Additional funding provided to:
Upcoming 2020/2021 PTA events
The following event dates are now confirmed:
This year with Covid-19 the PTA will need to be creative with fundraising and will be looking towards virtual fundraising efforts. If you have any ideas of fundraising we would be happy to hear them! Email us at email@example.com or get in touch via The Wilmslow Academy PTA Facebook Page.
Profits from all PTA events benefits the children at the school as it will contributes to improvements for the playground, coach travel for school trips and subsidising workshops.
