Benefitting All Hope Valley Students

In recent years, support from the PTFA has helped Hope Valley College refurbish its library and geography classrooms.  It has provided a 3D printer for use in the Design and Technology Department, benches for students' use at breaktime and lunchtime and new goalposts on the football pitches.  The school also has the PTFA to thank for the fantastically cheerful refurbished restaurant.

The PTFA would love to hear from you if you can provide great ideas for fund-raising opportunities, and help to make them happen.
