‘Enriching the school community’
All parents and students of The Burgate School and Sixth Form are automatically members of our PTSA. We meet on a regular basis with the goal of ‘enriching the school community’ which we aim to achieve in a variety of ways, enabling everyone the opportunity to be involved and have a voice.
We welcome all of our parents and students to join us whenever they can and there are many reasons for you to want to get involved.
Reasons to attend PTSA meetings at Burgate:
In the past couple of years we have been able to sponsor many school events, host our own fundraising events and pay for a number of items in school to the benefit of our students and their families.
Examples of our work:
We are proud sponsors of the very popular Burgate’s Got Talent event which takes place every March as well as the Creative Arts Evening in the summer which showcases the wide range of creative provision at Burgate and the talents of our students. We also provide refreshments and/or support at a number of key events throughout the year, including September Open Evening, quiz nights, and school productions.
We have also helped to fund either all or part of a number of recent school initiatives including; the Memory Garden at the front of school, new sports equipment e.g. hockey goals, a brand new kiln for the school, a hanging system to showcase the art and design work of our students, footballs and basketballs for use by students at breaks and lunchtimes, as well as numerous other essential items that the school and students would otherwise not benefit from.
If you are a parent or a student of The Burgate School and Sixth Form then please consider getting involved with the PTSA – we value your input and would appreciate any help you can provide.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
