Parents & Friends

Despite being a small academy our Parents & Friends Association is very active. All parents are welcome to join and help raise funds to support life at our school.

You can follow our PTA on Facebook – just type in Hollinsclough PTA to find us. Please note that this page is a privately run created and managed by our parents and as such we do not have any control over the content or comments made and accepted.

If you cannot take part in any of our events and would still like to donate funds please click on the Donate button like this one seen throughout our website and PayPal will do the rest.


If you are feeling generous the PayPal Donate link above and at the bottom of each page allows you to set up a monthly arrangement or make a one-off donation directly to the PTA account which is separate from the school and controlled by its members.

Our Summer Fete during June 2019 raised just over £2,500 on the day; the weather was much improved on last year. With each Summer Fete comes the annual Chrome Hill Fell Race which this year attracted over 120 runners. The race participants included runners from Keswick and as far away as Germany. In addition, we again hosted one of the series of Championship races for Nottinghamshire AAA. It looks like we have secured this facility for a number of year’s to come. Our next summer fete and fell race will take place on Saturday 29th June 2020.

We would like to extend our many thanks to Buxton Water (Nestle) –  for their donation of bottled water and to Running Bear in Alderley Edge for their donation of race numbers.

Our PTA manage and maintain a range of other events throughout the academic year, including our Christmas Fayre / Concert, along with many other sponsored spells, reading, discos, parties and auctions all in support of our school and notable charities such as Macmillan.

If you would like to be involved or could contribute to any of our events or you just want to make a one-off donation to our PTA fund, please contact our PTA directly by e-mail, – Events Co-ordinator, (if required) who will then contact you directly.

Please see our Patrons web page for details of companies and individuals who have made generous donations, both financial and/or material to our academy – If you are interested we look forward to making you welcome and part of our diverse team.
