Parent Teacher Association

Twickenham Academy Parental and Teachers Association

Twickenham Academy Parents and Teachers Association run events at the school and helps school projects via voluntary work. The PTA meets each half term.

We are always looking for new members and all parents, guardians and staff are very welcome to join us.

We understand that more families and friends of the school would like to join in the work of the PTA in order to help us continue the fundraising that we do to offer additional and valued services to the students and school. The committee would appreciate any offers of help and support towards the fundraising drive and we think this could be an ideal opportunity for you to contribute in a fun and meaningful way.

Our plan is to hold many fundraising events over the year and as usual we can only make these events successful with the involvement and participation of parents, teachers and friends. We would welcome all ideas and offers of help towards the many different fundraising events.
