The Burnham Grammar School Parent Teacher Association involves parents of current pupils, who volunteer their time to organise and run fundraising events in aid of the school, in partnership with the staff. Over the years, through the support and generosity of the parents, pupils and the general public, we have raised thousands of pounds. This has enabled us to fund many of the things which the school would just not be able to afford otherwise, such as a new piano for the music department, school mini bus, department iPads and a trampoline for the PE department. In these times of austerity measures and budget cuts, the money the PTA raises is even more vital to the school and it is all done on an entirely voluntary basis, but we need your help to do it!
How can you help?
Join the 250 Club
Our main fundraiser to raise much needed funds for your child’s school is the 250 club. We hope that you will support our fund raising this year, payment can now be made via your parent pay account. To enter there is a one-off annual payment of £20.00 and all the money raised goes directly to the school. You will be entered in to all 3 draws which will be held in December (Christmas), March (Easter) & July (Summer).
Prizes to be won:
The BGS PTA raises funds to buy equipment in all departments of the school to enhance and benefit all the students.
Support our fund raising events
All events will be advertised on the website and by letter/texts home.
Make a Donation!
If you do not wish to take part in the 250 Club, perhaps you would consider making a donation instead?
Why not join the PTA?
With your help for a few hours a term we can raise the funds which really will make a BIG difference to the school. We mainly help out by serving refreshments at school events, but are always open to new ideas for fund-raising.
Our AGM will be held on Monday 14th October at the school starting at 6.30pm.
