St James PTFA

The St James PTFA is a friendly group of people who meet to discuss fundraising ideas and organise events to support our school.

The PTFA raise thousands of pounds each year, providing valuable financial resources to support and enhance our School for our children.

Over the last two years we have provided iPads and made many other smaller contributions, such as money for play equipment to help keep our children active and subsidised many in school activities.  In ‘normal’ times, the PTFA contributes to school trips and many other activities that help enhance our children’s life in school.

During 2021 we raised over £1,800 with the valuable support of the St James School Family.

More details are available here.

Could you spare some of your time to help?

We are always looking for new members, so why not join our team and bring new ideas?  If you would like to find out more, volunteer to join our team or can spare an hour or two to help out at any of our forthcoming events, please contact us on or leave your name & number with the school office.
