The role of the PTA (Parent Teacher Association) is to strengthen the spirit of community at the Study School. This is done by a) funding of special events in the lives of our children – such as the prize giving for Year Six leavers & the Easter Egg Hunt of the Nursery children, b) financing school-wide experiences for the children beyond the classroom in the form of two curriculum-related performances during the year and c) organising and running the social elements during key school events (drinks at the curriculum evening, prize giving etc) and a variety of family events.

The latter of these – the school fairs & family events – provide us parents with a chance to see our children interact with their peers and teachers, experience first hand the school dynamic and, as a community of adults linked by our children, we are able to spend some time together – either getting to know each other or cementing friendships.
