Blackheath Prep’s Parents, Teachers and Friends Association (PTFA) plays a vital role in building positive links between home, the school and our local community. PTFA volunteers work hard all year round to enrich the social aspects of our school through a varied programme of events. They also raise funds for school activities and our partner charities.

A varied programme of events take place throughout the year, ranging from the popular Christmas and summer fairs, discos, ice-cream sales and playground tea parties to the evening socials for parents and the annual quiz night. The PTFA’S fundraising efforts have raised money for many different projects and in recent years have funded two adventure playgrounds at school as well as musical instruments for our Strings, Wind and Brass programmes. Most recently, the PTFA funded the development of our Garden of Imagination used by pupils for Forest School activities and the purchase of playground games sets.
