Welcome to the Arnett Hills PTA Webpage
At Arnett Hills, we believe that we are all ‘ on the PTA’, it’s a collaboration between parents, teachers, children and friends of Arnett Hills.
We work together to organise fun events to raise money and to nurture our school community. This enhances our children’s learning and makes out school a wonderful place to be.

Our Fundraising Events
Every year, the PTA organises lots of different fun activities and events for our children and our families, these include…
- Summer & Christmas Fayre
- Easter Egg hunt and Mini Fayre
- Roller Discos
- Halloween and Christmas Disco
- Lolly, Sweet, cake and second hand uniform sales
The PTA is proud to have raised money for a variety of projects for the children which include an educational trip for each year group, science workshops for each year group, Watersmeet tickets for the Christmas pantomime, Leavers’ year books for the older year group and much more.
It is with the vital funding from the PTA and the generosity and support of our parents that all of the children are fortunate enough to take part in these educational excursions and extracurricular activities.
Here’s how you can get involved…
- Give your time
Volunteer to help at an event, bake a cake, donate a raffle prize – every offer of help is welcome.
- Join the PTA.
The PTA is run by a group of parents and teachers, we are all busy and most are working so we’re always looking for more volunteers, events can only continue if we have people to organise and help out.
