PTFA stands for Parents, Teachers & Friends Association and as a charity we raise funds for the much needed equipment and facilities at our school. The committee is made up of both parents and teachers at Testbourne Community School. As a member of the PTFA you get to build relationships with teachers, staff, other parents & the wider community, make new friends & have some fun while helping the school to provide the best for the students. Each year the PTFA tend to organise a Quiz Night, Christmas Craft Fair, Fun Run and TestFest, please see our news pages for further information about previous events.

Our fundraiser formerly known as ‘50/50 Club’ has had a big brand makeover and is now known as ‘100 Club’. Not only does this sound cooler but it more accurately represents what the club is all about.
There are 100 places in the club and each member is assigned a number from 1-100. Each participant pays £4 per month by standing order, this entitles them to be entered into the monthly draw, when two numbers are picked. The 1st Prize is £100 and the 2nd Prize is £50.
The draw takes place at the end of each month, or near to it as possible. Winners will be posted on the PTFA Facebook page and here on the school website.
A few numbers have recently become available due to participants moving on as their children have gone to college. If you are interested in joining the 100 Club, please read the further detail and send the application form below. New members will be given a choice of the numbers remaining.
The PTFA committee make an extremely positive contribution to our school, not only in fundraising, but in organising all the various events which helps to bring the school and local community together. In order to continue this work, they are always looking for people to join them and help assist in any way. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to join or can offer your services in any way at one of our events.
