Parent Teacher Association

Cardinal Heenan has a strong and committed Parent Teacher Association (PTA).  This active and enthusiastic group arranges a wide variety of events throughout the year to raise funds for the school.  In the past these have included quiz nights, BBQs, dances and the popular annual sportsman’s dinner.

Martin Greirson, from the school's PTA, said: "We hold monthly events which often feature live music, a disco and chances to win cash prizes.  The school has a fully licenced bar – don't be put off by attending a night out in a school – the entertainment is great, the beer is cheap, and we are on your doorstep.  Plus there's no need to pay for expensive taxis into town!  Most importantly though, all money raised from these events go to benefit your children in the school."

Our students gain a lot from the hard work of the PTA and their efforts have paid for books, school trips and class excursions.  We are quite convinced that we have the most generous and hardworking PTA in the city.

How to get involved

The PTA is a friendly and sociable group, they have established a sports and social club which allows members meet up and to use all of the school’s sporting facilities on Friday evenings.

All parents/guardians of pupils at Cardinal Heenan Catholic High School automatically become members of the PTA but the events organising committee are always on the lookout for volunteers to help organise, promote and run events, please get in touch if you can help!

Details of forthcoming social and fundraising events can be found in our school calendar:
