Welcome to the Parent Teacher Association


Welcome to the Parent TeacherAssociation (PTA) of Drayton Manor High School.


The PTA raises funds for the school and it also helps to provide curriculum information for parents. Over recent years we have raised over £21,000. Only the students and school benefit and last year we provided funds for extra curriculum resources across every subject, numerous rewards for student achievement, a digital piano, art supplies, software, lighting and film production kit, mentoring resources, funding towards training three staff for BELA qualifications to enable staff to run the Duke of Edinburgh award anda wealth of items for classrooms and teaching aids. Every single department in the school benefits from these additional funds and so your child will also have benefited.There is no subscription fee and you will automatically be a member for as long as your child attends the school.

What you get out of becoming more involved in the PTA:


  • A sense of belonging to the school community
  • Get to find out a littlemore about what’s going on in the school
  • Get to know some of the teaching staff
  • Contribute directly to your own child’s schooling
  • Give something back to the school community
  • Contribute to discussions about how the money raised is spent
  • Bring new ideas to the table
  • Have some fun! We do have a few social events which are a great way to get to know some other parents.


The PTA section lists the dates for all PTA events - the PTA meetings, quiz suppers, curriculum evenings and the car boot sales.

Car Boot Sales


These events, which run on Saturday mornings, from April through to September each year, are our main fundraising activity. They take place at the school playing fields on the corner of Greenford Avenue and Ruislip Rd East, W7 3DD. The sales have become very successful and we always need volunteers to help to run them. Just a little bit of your time would make a big difference to the few parents who are already involved. 


In the present circumstances of Covid-19, the Car Boot Sale is suspended, but the PTA will continue to monitor the Government advice & review the position as to whether the Car Boot Sale can return later in the year. Please check the School website for future updates.


PTA Meetings


The PTA meets regularly to talk about fundraising activities, discuss issues related to the school, and to get an update from the Senior Leadership Team representative on recent school activities and initiatives. The meetings are held at 6pm on Mondays.The meetings are very relaxed so if you just want to come along to the occasional meeting, that’s absolutely fine.


PTA meetings have taken place on 24 September 2018 and 28 January 2019. The next meeting will take place on 13 May 2019. We look forward to seeing you there.
