Highworth Warneford PTA has been in existence for many years, and in common with most organisations of this kind, is run by a group of volunteers who work hard to raise much needed additional funds for the school to enrich our children’s learning experience.
We meet every 5-6 weeks to discuss upcoming school events we usually support by selling refreshments and to review funding requests. You may have noticed us at parents’ evenings, open days or music events.
Recent examples of how we have managed to support the school include:
· Buying outdoor tables and chairs for social times
· Helping the school to buy resources used in Activities Week
· Running the Year 7 Disco
Why not come along to the next meeting? We are always desperate for more helpers as our numbers seem to decrease caused by busy, demanding lives and ever-changing circumstances. Any help, even for 1 event a year will make a difference to us. We are parents & teachers who care to make an extra effort and yes, we always have fun at the events!

Another important source of income is the school uniform resale via our PTA website. We get donations of school uniform items that pupils have outgrown, we check them over, wash and resell them here:
Even if the donations are not fit for resale, we make use of our on-site clothes bank to generate a profit still. Please, if you can, do use the clothes bank for other unwanted, clean clothes - it all goes towards raising funds to benefit the school.
