Springwell PFTA (Parents, Friends and Teachers Association) is a group of people who all have the same goal…raising funds and supporting the College whilst having fun!

The PFTA is a great way to get involved in College life and to build relationships across the community. We support all College events and have a presence throughout the surrounding area, and every student benefits from the funds that we raise. We also attend community events to raise awareness of the College and its’ facilities.

Each year we hold different events, but some favourites include:

  • Fashion Show
  • Bingo Evening
  • Christmas Fayre
  • Treasure Hunts
  • Race Nights
  • Beetle Drives
  • World Cuisine and Quiz Night

In the past we have raised money for:

  • The College to achieve Specialist Arts status
  • College minibus
  • Departmental requests
  • Funds towards Achievement Evening prizes

College events we support include:

  • Achievement Evening
  • Parents Evenings
  • College Productions
  • Primary Music Festival
  • SCart Events
  • Year 6 Transition Evening
