The Marlborough Science Academy


The PTA is a vital part of the school community and helps in building links between school and home.

The money that the PTA raises is more important than ever before and our PTA works hard to ensure that the school has the necessary support it needs with many fundraising events, including the M Festival, which is hugely successful.

We are always on the lookout for new parents to join the PTA, any support – no matter how small is welcome. If your time is limited, you don’t have to attend all the meetings. You can choose to help in organising a particular event with other parents from the school, offer a particular skill, or help out with backroom admin tasks.

We have meetings on a regular basis (dates will appear on the PTA Website) and we also have a Facebook page - you can find us at Marlborough Science Academy PTA.

If you have any questions or queries please don’t hesitate to contact us at

Kind regards

Angela Cronin and Nathalie Johnson
Co-PTA Chair

What is the PTA, how to get involved and how to contact us?

The current PTA is an active group of parents, who together with the Headteacher, Annie Thomson, work with the school to raise funds to improve the school experience for all our children. The PTA is a vital part of the school community, and helps in building links between school and home.

We usually meet in the second week of each half term for an hour or so. The date of the next meeting is shown below. Meetings are held in the school Boardroom: turn left through school reception and go to the end of the corridor past the Headteacher’s office, and everyone is welcome. Minutes of previous meetings can be found on the left under the 'PTA Downloads' section if you would like to know more about what goes on.

All parents are automatically part of the PTA and we are always on the lookout for ideas about events and for helpers.

If your time is limited, you don’t have to attend all the meetings. You can choose to help in organising a particular event, offer a particular skill, (like marketing), or help out with backroom admin tasks.

Attending events and encouraging other parents to support events also helps.

Bids for funds can be made at our PTA meetings each half term. Click here for a copy of the bid form.
