We are a passionate group of parents and school team members who work together with the aim of making a difference to the students who come to Horsforth School.
Meetings are informal and friendly and we get together regularly to plan and organise events to fundraise to support the school, charities and to further enhance the work of the whole school community.
We rely on the time and commitment of the team, we couldn’t do this alone. Would you like to be involved and join our team? Especially if you have been a keen PTA member at your child’s primary school, we would love to hear from you.
Upcoming Meeting Dates
Watch this space!
We are currently fundraising for the following things:
Student Tranquility Garden (£5,000)
Our lovely students have come up with a fantastic idea to build a school tranquility garden. To support their fundraising efforts the PTA will launch an online auction to help raise money.
Place your bid here from 16th March, and help make our students’ vision a reality.
School Lottery – Raising Funds for Students
Our School Lottery provides extra resources for students. It’s £1 a week to play and someone from our school is guaranteed a weekly prize – plus there’s a weekly national prize of £25,000! Anyone over 16 years can play so share away and best of luck!
How We’ve Made a Difference

- Pencil cases for the school children of Langa township in South Africa (£300)
As part of the 2019 sport’s trip to South Africa
