The Grove Schools PTA

Welcome to the PTA section.


The Parent Teacher Association

As a Grove parent you are automatically a member of the The Grove Schools' Parent Teacher Association (PTA) and we are very grateful for any contribution that you are able to offer. The aims of the PTA are to promote broader contact between parents and staff, and to run activities to support the schools and advance the children’s education. We have been very proud to have raised funds which have helped provide ipads and resources and created a wonderful outside area for the schools. The PTA have an Annual Meeting at which the Committee are elected, a Zoom meeting every month (usually the first Tuesday at 8.00 pm), and an extensive programme of social and fundraising functions throughout the year.
