Ways to help fundraise for the school

Through Charitable Giving

Did you know that the PTA is a registered charity?
Individuals, sole-traders and partners who make a donation to charity can claim tax relief. Limited companies who make a donation can reduce the amount of corporation tax they pay by the same amount. Full details of these schemes can be found on the HMRC website at www.gov.uk.

If you’re thinking of taking advantage of one of these schemes why not think of us? The money we raise is donated to the school for projects large and small that will benefit our children.

Charity number: 1144560
