A Message from the PTFA Chair

Arden Academy is truly a wonderful school with an amazing family ethos. The PTFA is a friendly diverse range of parents, carers and staff who are passionate about supporting Arden students. Our main purpose is to raise funds to help provide much-needed resources and to positively impact the education of pupils and we do this by holding fundraising events and activities throughout the school year.

We need your help to keep the PTFA going and would welcome your involvement in any capacity you can manage.

If you would like to get involved with the PTFA’s activities, would like any other information about the PTFA, or have any suggestions or ideas about fund-raising, please drop us an email -
