Brightlingsea Schools PTA

The PTA has been an integral part of the schools community for a number of years. In its time they have raised thousands of pounds, which has been spent on equipment and resources to enhance our children’s educational experience and the school’s facilities.

However, the  PTA is about much more than simply fundraising, it is also an excellent way to bring staff, parents and friends together socially in support of the school, working towards a common goal.  It is fun too - just ask any of the Committee members. 

All families are automatically members of the Association when their child joins our schools.
