What We Do

The PTA plays an important role at Chesham Prep.

We aim to strengthen the school community by:

  • supporting parents and teachers through effective communication
  • facilitating community spirit by hosting a variety of events
  • fundraising to provide additional equipment or activities for all children beyond the normal remit of the school funds

Where Your Money Goes

Over recent years, the PTA has funded, or raised money towards, a huge array of items, some of which we continue to fund on an annual basis:

  • Adlington Hall refurbishment
  • Artists in Residence (annual)
  • Astro Turf
  • Author visits (annual)
  • Classroom Smart-boards
  • Sports Gazebo
  • LRC computer suite
  • Outdoor Learning area

Events are well supported by staff and parents and, as well as raising a significant amount of money for the school, they are seen to be more about successfully building a sense of community.
