Beacon Hill Academy Parent Teacher Association

The Beacon Hill Academy Parent Teacher Association (BHA-PTA) exists to foster a feeling of ‘community’ amongst the parents, staff and Learners of Beacon Hill Academy. The key aims of The Beacon Hill Academy Parent Teacher Association is:

  • To represent the views and opinions of parents.
  • Help raise money for the school and invest in school facilities & resources.
  • Promote community cohesion both within the school and in the local community.

Voice of the Parent

The BHA-PTA meet around 4-5 times a year and receive reports and presentation from the Principal and other members of staff from across the school.

The association is a friendly group of parents who are positively encouraged to be part of the partnership and where parent’s views and opinions are very much valued. The PTA support school events such as the Summer Concert, theatrical evenings and Open Evenings providing refreshments and guidance.

Fundraising & Social Events

The PTA have a proud tradition and track record of fundraising. Every year the Beacon Hill Academy Parent’s Association raise on average £3000. Their biggest fund raising event is the annual Summer Fayre; this involves the association working closely with form classes in year 7 – 9 and members of the local community to plan and organise a Summer fete. The PTA organise a Raffle, Tombola, Book stall and source prizes from the local community and businesses.

The association also helps to organise social events throughout the year, whilst at the same time raising funds to benefit all Learners across the school. In the last few years, the BHA-PTA have helped fund many different items requested by parents, staff and Learners. In the last two years the money raised has contributed to the following areas:

  • A new community room
  • Stage lighting and projector
  • Charity trip to Morocco
  • Radio microphones for use in the school productions
  • Instruments for the Music Department
  • A brazing hearth for the DT department
  • New backdrop for the stage
  • A holiday club of activities for disadvantaged learners

The Association also organise social events throughout the year, which are hugely popular and well attended by parents and families. Each year the parents association help organise and run the inter-house quiz nights in the Autumn and Spring Term.
