Welcome to the HSL PTFA

The High School Leckhampton Parents Teachers and Friends Association, otherwise known as the PTFA, offers a fantastic way for parents and carers to support the school.

The objective of the PTFA is to advance the education of pupils in the school, which may include:

  1. Developing more extended relationships between the staff, parents and others associated with the school
  2. Engage in activities which support the school and advance the education of the pupils attending it
  3. Provide and assist in the provision of facilities or items for education at the school that are not provided from statutory funds

What’s coming up?

THSL Summer Fair

Arrangements for the Summer Fair are at a very early stage. Much of the HSL Summer Fair will be run by the pupils themselves, however it is proposed that a small PTFA Sub-Committee is set up to help HSL get this event up and running. This Sub-Committee is likely to be less formal and meet outside of school to reduce the burden on school staff.

To get involved with the Summer Fair Sub-Committee, please email as soon as possible.

The PTFA raises funds to support the school in purchasing additional educational items and facilities for the school. For example, in 2022-23 we raised money for library books and we are currently raising funds towards kits for THSL sports teams as well as supporting other much-needed projects. We welcome donations at all our events and are dependent on your support. You are welcome to contribute gifts / prizes for future events and if you are able to give any time or skills to support the PTFA, please fill out a pledge form and email to
