The PTFA have raised funds over recent years in excess of £50,000 to support as many students as possible during their time at the school.
These include a new minibus, 15 cycles, upgrading the Sixth Form Café, online Encyclopedia Britannica access, a variety of equipment across the school from sports to 3D printers to radio microphones for musical productions and events.
The PTFA events held such as the Summer BBQ & Music Night are not just to raise funds but to form links within the East Barnet community.
Following the annual general meeting that took place on 17th March 2022 I was voted in as Chair again following the resignation of Bobby Daruwalla who stepped down.
The last two years have been challenging as the PTFA have not held any fundraising events and recruitment opportunities have been difficult due to restrictions around Covid-19.
The key objective now is putting a new team together especially with the new intake of Year 7 Parents and Carers. The PTFA needs new talent and ideas and I believe volunteers who have students at the school make the best supporters. Parents and carers from other years are most welcome, the PTFA is an ideal way to stay connected with friends from Primary school days.
The “old guard” will still be on hand to hand over or discuss the various roles with the PTFA. Please look at the various fundraising appeals in this section and how we have had contributed to making students time at EBS that little bit more enjoyable.

Can you join us for our next PTFA Meetings?
The PTFA really needs the support of the entire EBS community if they are to continue to raise vital funds for our school through events and other fundraising means. For more information, please e-mail Stuart Gates at firstname.lastname@example.org or speak to the PTFA Liaison, in the School Front Office. Thank you.
The PTFA regularly organise special fundraising events to raise money for new school equipment and initiatives. Check out our school calendar to find out about upcoming PTFA events. Check out EBS News for reports from previous PTFA events!
