Parent, Teacher & Friends Association (PTFA)

Welcome to Marchwood Junior School PTFA. We are an enthusiastic group of parents who run events and raise money to enhance the education of the children at Marchwood Junior School. We also have a lot of fun while doing it! We meet regularly (about every 6-8 weeks) to organise regular events and also to plan larger one-off events. 

Contact us:


We have some regular events which happen throughout most academic years. These either raise money or provide enriching experiences for the children.

  • Fireworks Display
  • Easter Egg Hunt
  • Christmas Fayre
  • Discos
  • Film Club
  • Village Traders Evening
  • Summer Village Fete

We are always looking for new fundraising ideas and opportunities - please get in touch if you have an idea to share with us!

Further Information:

It’s not all about fundraising though…

  • Being part of the PTFA means you are actively taking part in the school community.
  • It is great for parents and teachers to work together in partnership with a common aim.
  • Being part of the PTFA is also a great way to get to know your school and how it works.
  • It provides an insight into the different areas and their needs and priorities.
  • It is also a great way to meet other parents and members of staff.
