Turing House Friends (PTA)


What is Turing House Friends (THF)?

THF supports the work of Turing House School by bringing the wider school community together through engaging, entertaining, informing and fund-raising.  You may be familiar with similar groups such as PTAs or PSAs.

Who are Turing House Friends?

THF is made up of parents, carers, students, teachers, staff, volunteers and invited members of the community.

As a registered charity THF is governed by elected officers:

Paddy Turner - Chair

Viki Veale and Rob Woods - Joint Secretary

Toshimi Akao - Treasurer.

The elected officers are supported by the wider THF community and we are delighted to see so many people contributing to the work of THF.

What has Turing House Friends been up to recently?

  • The Quiz and Curry night saw us raise £600 as over a dozen teams battled it out for glory.
  • There have been lots of  refreshments served for all the many schools events ranging from concerts, theatre shows and parent information evenings.
  • We have raised match funding, supporting the outstanding sporting feats of the Turing House teachers, for the purchasing of fitness equipment.
  • The ongoing hosting of a number of drinks evenings continue to prove very successful, thank you to everyone who has been coming along, it’s fantastic to see them so well attended and many new friendships being formed. 
  • The Turing House School Library is now stocked: Thanks to the entire school community and local businesses for all the very generous book gifts.
  • A packed house raised over £700 for the school as Elleray Hall transformed into a cabaret club for the Friends' Comedy Fundraiser. Thank you to everyone who bought tickets and went along 

How to make sure you are informed?

How to get involved?

  • The very best way is to just jump in, enjoy and support the initiatives we are delivering.
