Parent & Staff Association
(Registered Charity No: 1039815)

This year we are aiming to raise funds for a School Minibus which would be used for field trips, PE fixtures, college journeys and other student needs instead of having to hire a vehicle.
During the last year we have supported financially the Drama department, the Stem Club, Business & Enterprise, the Girls’ football team and the new social area in the school. We ran the canteen during the school’s 60th Anniversary Open Day, organise raffles and refreshments at bi-annual concerts, help with the Danceathon, claim the gift aid payments and this year ran a successful Quiz evening.
BUT we need more parents to help.  Even if you can just attend the meetings we could use your ideas.  Or if you could help with one event a year – let us know your contact details. 


Over the years the PSA has raised and spent thousands of pounds to extend and improve the students’ school experience.

Who we are & what we do:

• Parents, carers and staff of students at Cottingham High School raising funds for equipment or activities which benefit the students and school.
• We work with the school to offer support and provide feedback for new developments.

When we meet:
Meetings are held once or twice a term.  The times and dates are advertised on the website and the calendar.  Come along - we are a friendly, informal mix of parents, staff and governors who want to give something extra to the school.

How you can help:

refreshments at concerts.
