Friends of Carlton School



Who wants to join our school ‘friends group’ (PTA)? What is it for? You say, backing away.

The short answer is fundraising, pennies and pounds – The school’s tight stretched budget can’t always go round. We buy extra resources, for learning and play,

To enrich and enhance our children’s school day.


Who wants to join our school ‘friends group’? What do you do? You gingerly say,

Well, we run movie nights, discos, Christmas and summer Fayres. Cake sales, Easter events, we’ve a lot on our plate!

We serve teas and coffees at most school events, On baking cakes and biscuits much time is spent. Christmas Party Day, is for us the best bit, Serving dinner for children, inviting Santa to visit.


Who wants to join our school ‘friends group’? Is it all mothers’ meetings? You nervously say. It’s true that we chatter at the school gate,

Lots of business gets sorted around half past eight But we really are a very mixed bunch,

Business people, professionals, and ladies that lunch You don’t have to be female to be part of our club…
