The Knox Academy PTA is a very active sub group of the Knox Academy Parent School Council. The purpose of the Group is to organise and promote social events and fundraising activities for the whole school bringing together parents, carers, pupils, staff and the community – similar to that of a PTA in primary schools.

Members and meetings

The PTA is made up of parents, carers, pupils and staff, who meet up throughout the year to organise fundraisers.  The money raised is used to help provide equipment for pupils throughout the school.  For example:

Electronic Notice Board in Entrance Hall

Screen Projector in Main Hall

Land Yacht Enterprise Challenge

Camera for Prince’s Trust Award

Chairs for Common Room

Computer Games Development

Donation towards School Piano

Art Frames

Sports Equipment

Enigma Machine

Home Economics’ Chef Whites,

Kenwood Mixer and Hostess Trolley

X-Box Controllers

Science Weighing Machine

The main fundraising events held throughout the year are:

Burns Supper

Duck Derby

Teas in the Park

BLINGO Evening

Pupils’ Christmas Dance

All meetings are very informal so, if you feel you can help in any way, please come along.  The PTA is made up of both parents and school staff and meets two or three times each term on a Tuesday evening at the school. For more information check our facebook page for advance notice.  Alternatively, contact Mrs Ball via the School Office on 01620 823387.
