As a parent you are automatically a member of the George Abbot PTA – as are all members of school staff. There is a team of about 35 closely involved with management and event organisation and a further 150 who are on the list of volunteers. All help is very much appreciated.
The aim of the PTA is to draw on the skill and expertise of the parents to support the school and enhance school life. The PTA raises money to buy extras, such as a telescope for the physics department; it provides help at events, such as the graduation, and it arranges social events for parents and teachers such as the the Christmas Fayre, quiz evenings, school production evenings. Annually the PTA raises over £20,000.
