PTFA – Parents, Teachers and Friends Association

The PTFA raise money to support the education of the pupils and the life of the school – so that the children enjoy that little bit extra from their time here.

We are currently fundraising to buy Ipads for use in school, plus the start-up of the new wraparound care (before- and after-school care) needs to be subsidised. See below for easy ways in which you can help.

As we are a small village school joining the PTFA is a fun and friendly way to meet new people whilst raising funds for our children.

Keep checking the News page for events and meetings or see our Facebook page.

Great turn out for Easter Bingo

We regularly hold community events in the village and we would love to see you at our next one. Check the News page for details.

Raise Funds by Shopping Online

We can earn a commission every time you shop online. All you need to do is register at and search for Henry Prince School as your good cause (ignore the fact that Easyfundraising thinks the school is in Alkmonton). You can even install a Chrome plugin which will remind you to click the Easyfundraising link, and thus raise money for the school, everytime you shop at Amazon, eBay and many other shops.


If you would like to hold an event to raise money for the school yourself, or have other ideas which we could use, please get in touch.
