East Grinstead, West Sussex

St Mary’s School Association (PTA)

Welcome to the PTA known as St Mary’s School Association


All parents, guardians with a child at the school and all staff are members of the St Mary’s School Association.


We raise funds for the school for items that the School budget cannot cover. Any item we purchase for the school benefits all year groups.


Our Events are essentially designed to make sure everyone has a good time and the children enjoy themselves.


We operate a 'class rep' system. This is a simple idea, whereby one or two parents, represent their year group. Their help is needed to promote forthcoming events to other year group parents and to seek additional assistance for events such as helpers at the school disco or stallholders for the summer fair.


Without Class Reps and all the rest of the volunteers it isn’t possible to run the association so please get involved.


We welcome your support.
