Enhancing our Children's education through fundraising

Arden Academy is truly a wonderful school with an amazing family ethos. It is unique in so many ways, not least because it has a vibrant PTFA raising funds to provide much-needed resources for our children. We are determined to keep the Arden PTFA alive and continue its great work but we do, from time to time, need a little help.

Currently, the PTFA consists of a core group of very committed parents and friends who have worked tirelessly over the years to raise on average £25,000 p.a. for the benefit of Arden students.

There are a number of high profile and very successful events, such as the Firework Festival and the Arden Christmas Ball, which are very rewarding and great fun to be involved with. Click on our Events Page for more information about these and other events. We never say no to any offers of help at any of our events - even half an hour of your time can make a tremendous difference. Maybe when you see just what we have achieved, you might be tempted...

The PTFA would like to ask for a boost to its Committee, which meets once a month here at school. Each meeting is attended by a member of the Arden Senior Management Team and it is a great opportunity to share information and ask questions. If you can spare on average 1-2 hours per month of your time and have some great fundraising ideas please consider joining the Arden PTFA Committee. Committee Meetings are usually held on the first Tuesday of the month at 7.45pm in Arden's Conference Room.

If you can spare that half-hour to help out, or you would like to come along and see if the Committee is for you, or maybe you would just like to find out more information, please let us know by emailing

Our Goals:

  • To develop links between Arden and the parents/guardians and to promote the Arden family ethos
  • To raise money to pay for items which will enhance the learning of the students so that they can maximise their potential
  • To have some fun whilst we achieve the first two goals
