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

The PTA has proudly supported the following this school year:

The Reading for Pleasure Initiative 

The PTA is proud to announce that we will bef 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 towards buying new books for the school.
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.
