PTAs raising millions of pounds.

The UK’s most successful state school parent-teacher associations are raising millions of pounds a year, research shows.

The top 30 PTAs in England raised £3.6million for their schools in a year, with half in London and a further nine elsewhere in the South East.

The Friends of Queen Elizabeth’s school in Barnet, north London, was the best performing PTA, raising £894,000, the researchers from The Observer found. Almost £700,000 was from donations and legacies rather than fundraising.

Queen Elizabeth’s, founded in 1573, is a grammar school where 97 per cent of children achieve A*-B grades at A-level. Cardinal Vaughan Memorial School, a Catholic boys’ comprehensive in Holland Park, west London, raised £631,770 in donations from parents and other benefactors.
