Friends of Saint John Houghton Parent Teacher Association

As many of you will already know, our Parent Teacher Association (Friends of Saint John Houghton) is the fund raising arm of our academy and is a registered charity. We are a very friendly group of staff and parents with a focus on raising much-needed additional funds for our academy in fun and effective ways. It is a great opportunity to meet other parents and really become part of the Saint John Houghton community. Our proceeds from previous year’s events have been used recently to buy shelters for students and sports and gym equipment.

Our focus over the coming year will be to provide those extras which will improve the learning environment for our students and they are telling us that they would like us to consider:

  • Providing lockers
  • Improving and increasing the amount of outdoor shelters/canopies
  • Making improvements to our toilet facilities

We need your help with these projects and there are a variety of ways in which you can make a difference. Everyone is welcome to attend our meetings and get involved in organising and helping at events. You may have a particular skill that you feel you can share to work on one of our projects or an idea for an event that you think would be fantastic. Perhaps the most important way in which you can help is to support our events.

Please use the form “About You” in the downloads section to tell us a bit about yourself – we need the many trades and talents of all our parents to build on the successes of Saint John Houghton.  Alternatively just send us an email with your details.

A schedule of three meetings and fund raising events will be appear in this section soon.  You can start supporting us now by turning your online shopping into free cash for our academy – see the flier “The Giving Machine” for more details and why not join our Planned Giving scheme – all contributions will be gratefully received.

If you have any queries or would like to know more, please get in touch with Lorna or Sally through:

Thank you for supporting us and we look forward to meeting you soon.

Kind regards
The Friends of Saint John Houghton PTA Team
