Derby Grammar School

Parent Teacher Association

The Parent Teacher Association (PTA) is open to all parents with children at Derby Grammar School. It is an active body made up of both parents and teachers who come together to support the best interests of the school. 

Often this involves organising important fundraising events and activities to ensure our pupils have access to the very best facilities and resources. In recent past, the PTA has managed to achieve a number of its goals, and our pupils have benefited from:

  • A refurbished summerhouse which is now used as a gym for Sixth Formers
  • A bike shelter
  • An additional mini bus which facilitates more trips and sports fixtures
  • A brand-new portable sound system, outdoor benches, additional staging, playground and sports equipment

Some of our largest PTA fundraising events in which take place each academic year are:

  • November: Fireworks
  • January: Jazz Night
  • March: Food Fayre
  • June: Summer Fete
  • Second-hand uniform sales

The PTA is always welcoming of new parents seeking to get more involved in school life. Michaela Gentles is our current Chair of the PTA Committee. Meetings are friendly and informal but very productive – if you would like to attend any future meetings, please contact [email protected]
