Friends of Wheatley Park
About the Friends of Wheatley Park
The 'Friends' aims to support the School through fundraising and social events. Money raised is given to the school for the benefit of the students in the form of grants, equipment and those extras for which the school does not receive funding.
The PTA is open to all parents and carers of students at Wheatley Park School. In view of the wide catchment area of the school, we are particularly keen to involve parents from all of the many small villages in the area.
For the remainder of this school year, the 'Friends' is raising funds mainly to provide a new Leisure Area on the large playground, which we want to have in place for next spring and summer. As well as this, we will continue to fund the many varied requests for grants from gardening gloves to microscopes, author visits to murals.
Please support our events and buy a drink at our bars!
