We enjoy a strong partnership with parents of our students, particularly through the Matthew Arnold School Parent Teacher Association (MAS PTA), which is a very active, fund-raising group providing many useful ‘extras’ for the school every year. The MAS PTA makes a significant contribution to the facilities, which we can offer to our students by organising a variety of social events, which bring parents, staff and students together. New members to the MAS PTA are always welcome.
Who we are
The Matthew Arnold School Parent Teacher Association (Formerly HSA) is a group of parents and teachers who support the school by fundraising, organising events, giving support at school events etc.
We are delighted to announce that in total the MAS PTA (HSA) donated £24,000 to the school which went towards the chairs and equipment for the new building (Sixth Form block). This is a fantastic achievement and we are very grateful for all the support we have had particularly over the last couple of years. It’s all gone a long way to supporting the school and its expansion.
We are delighted to announce that we have a new Chair - Mrs Gonda Coetzee. Along with our Treasurer, Mrs Mary Hull, Dr Paul Fisher as our Secretary and a number of parents who are Trustees, the MAS PTA meets regularly (usually in the pub!) where we discuss upcoming fundraising events and ideas for fundraising. We are grateful for all the support we get from parents/carers and their commitment to our efforts. If you think you’d like to get involved, please do email the MAS PTA at firstname.lastname@example.org for further information. In the meantime, our fundraising for this year continues.....please see here for the latest update and news of our new 100plus club - a monthly draw.
