Senior PTA


The Parent Teacher Association of St Catherine’s Senior School, the PTA, is composed of parents and teachers who volunteer their time and energy to provide the social link between the school and parents. The PTA aim to put on a range of events throughout the year that will appeal to many across all year groups. This ensures that parents are able to meet others both within their daughter’s year and also across the whole school, thus promoting a sense of community.

In addition to the social side, the PTA uses surplus funds from events to provide the Annual PTA Lecture and support School fundraising initiatives. Last year parents enjoyed a talk by Judy Reith who shared her 7 Secrets of Raising Girls and we are looking forward to Alex Fryer who is coming this year to share with us her expertise on Relationships and Sex Education.  Each year surplus funds are used to buy a range of items for the girls benefit that fall outside the scope of the school fees.  

Finally the PTA Second Hand Uniform shop provides an invaluable service to parents in both the Prep and Senior School and generates considerable funds for the PTA.

How to join

We are always looking for new committee members so if you would like to know more about what’s involved or simply offer your help at one of the events we would be delighted to hear from you.

PTA Structure

Every parent and teacher is invited to be a member of the PTA and a voluntary annual subscription is collected along with the school fees each year. The committee is composed of parents and teachers across the school, supported by a network of 60 class reps.   Being on the committee really is a fun and rewarding way to meet other parents and be more actively involved in school life.
