Welcome to the PTA section of our website.

PTA for St. Marys Catholic Primary School


St Mary’s Academy PTA is excited to welcome you into our community.

We are currently fundraising to assist in purchasing the school an amazing NEW Trim trail as requested by Mr Nicholson. This is something that will benefit all the children across reception KS1 & KS2 and will be around for many years to come for many more of our children to enjoy.


We have a big target of £4727 to make the trim trail a reality and we really need your help.

You can help in many ways be it volunteering to help at events, attending Meetings, sharing fundraising ideas, supporting events or donations of raffle prizes.


We have signed up to an amazing app PTAsocial that you can download from the app store for free. Here you will be able to see upcoming events and volunteer for the various roles needed be it manning a stall at a fayre supervising at a disco or serving drinks at the nativity the list is endless.

Christmas Fayre Update

The St Mary’s School PTA would like to thank all the hardworking and dedicated PTA volunteers for donating your time, skills and know-how, in order to benefit every student and their families.

We would also like to extend the gratitude to all the teaching team, support staff, parents, carers and children for their participation in the Christmas Fayre this year. We enjoyed seeing everyone having fun and we managed to raise the whopping amount of £1,101.50 that will be most beneficial for our school and our children.

“Coming together is the beginning.

Keeping together is progress.

Working together is success.”

- Henry Ford.

Once again thank you from your PTA.
