PTA at Wilsthorpe

Who are we?

We are a friendly and informal group of parents with children in lots of different years across the school.  We work together as a small team with the school in the hope that we can make a difference for the students at Wilsthorpe.


Running our elected committee as Chair is Jo Lewis, our Treasurer is Julie Owen and our Secretary is Bev Crawford, but every parent and carer is automatically a member of Wilsthorpe’s PTA, so we love it when other parents pop along to meetings and help out at our events.  If you see us at an event please come and say hello.


What do we do?

We support events for the students and raise money for the school.  Recent purchases have been a new video camera for the Drama Department and equipment for the school games club.


We sell refreshments at Parents Evenings and support the school drama productions with our tuck shop and by running raffles. We are also currently planning a disco for our new year 7's in November.  So do you have an idea for an event? Why not email us on and share your ideas.  We would love to hear from you.


How can I get involved?

We meet up at the Eaton Farm for a meeting, and a carvery, about once a term.  Please email us if you would like details of our next meeting, we would love you to come along and meet us all.  You don’t have to have previous experience of helping on a PTA.  


Some parents are unable to attend our meetings, but still want to help our and so we email them details of upcoming events and they sign up where they can.  Why not send us your details and we can add you to our helpers list?  Please email
