PTA funded projects for 2022

PTA funds come from the voluntary annual PTA donation that appears on your school invoice. These funds are allocated to those school projects which meet our funding criteria. The PTA does not undertake any other fundraising so we really appreciate your contribution.

The first PTA meeting of the year on 9th May will also be a decision making time for the first round of funding applications that come to the PTA from many different areas of the school. Please come along and see how many amazing projects the PTA help to fund.

Uniform shop

The BHS uniform shop has a great selection of both new and second hand items of uniform. Profits from the shop go straight back into school projects to benefit our students.

WE NEED YOUR HELP! We would be very grateful for some extra parent helpers, please email Jema if you can help in the uniform shop during its regular term time hours – Mondays 1-2pm and Tuesdays 2:45-4pm.


Current PTA Executive:

Chairperson: Matt Darnbrough

Treasurer: Sally McMorran

Uniform Shop Coordinator: Jema Nartea

Secretary: Rebecca Matheson

The PTA would like to take this opportunity to wish the BHS community a happy and healthy Easter holiday break.
