Welcome to the Townley Grammar School community!
As a Townley parent you are automatically part of the Townley Parent Teacher Association (PTA) - welcome! Working in partnership with the school we provide activities and equipment which further your daughter’s experience and education. This year we have been able to provide the funding for books for the English Department and the school Library, paid for materials for the Year 8 Black History Month exhibit and purchased a spirometer for the Biology Department.
We also act as a meeting place, in the real world and online and aim to offer information and parent-to-parent advice about how to support your child's education and wellbeing during their time at Townley.
P.S. Since we’ve grabbed your attention - a quick reminder:
If you are happy to do so, do consider signing up for Easyfundraising to support the PTA.
Easyfundraising works with hundreds of retailers - including John Lewis, Boots, M&S, Tesco, AO, Sky and many more - to raise funds, with no additional cost to the customers, based on the purchases that they make.
In the last year alone, through Easyfundraising we have received over £1,000 - for free - and that’s with just twenty people signed up! Can you imagine what we could raise if even more of us joined!
There are no hidden costs and it’s simple and easy to use: you just need to visit your retailer via their app. You’ll find details here and all the money raised helps to provide terrific resources for the school. You can also select Townley Grammar School PTA as the beneficiary from any purchases you make on Amazon Smile.
As our outgoing Chair, Filipa puts it - “It’s free money!”
Finally, you’ll find more ways to support us, including our monthly Lucky Numbers Prize Draw, Second-hand Uniform sales and other events, on our webpage here.
Do come along to any of our meetings - the next will be on Monday Feb 7th at 7:30pm, hopefully in person at the school or, if necessary, online.
And if you’ve any questions at all, drop us a line at [email protected].
Thanks for completing the quick Quick Talks Quick Survey (Townley PTA Quick Talks Survey).
We look forward to meeting you!
All very best wishes,
Akua, Filipa, David and the PTA Committee.

Purchase second-hand uniform
The PTA Second-hand Uniform Shop offers a range of "pre-loved" uniform at hugely reduced prices. All the sizes available are on the website; unfortunately the PTA do not have every item available in every size. Prices start at £3 for a shirt and blazers are £15.
Items can be purchased from our uniform shop and paid for online at:
Orders will be delivered to Townley Reception by a PTA volunteer. Please note that the uniform is washed and checked by PTA parents but it is in used condition.
Want to donate your daughter's outgrown uniform? We welcome all donations of used PE and other uniform items; please leave it at school Reception marked for the PTA's attention. Thank you!
