Thanks to the support of many parents over the years, funds raised by the LMS PTA have helped purchase many items requested by Department Heads (these are called teachers bids). 

PTA campaigns - The PTA have led campaigns to raise funds for large items of equipment, expansion projects and have also secured financial contributions from charitable foundations. The Weston Foundation provided £50,000 towards the refurbishment of the changing rooms in 2014 and the Daisy Trust contributed to the purchase of a new Grand Piano. 

Equipment purchased - Funds raised by the PTA have bought: visualizers, white boards, glass pens, screen printing exposing unit, art materials, lighting (Art), LED projectors, autoclave (Science), CAD/CAM sewing archine (DT), lockers, exercise mats (PE), desks, microscope and lab packs, printers (Geography and History),  microwaves, Duke of Edinburgh equipment, mirrors (PE), catwalk (DT), repairs to silk screens (Art), easels (Art), cookers (DT), keyboards (Music), laptops and over £7,000 has been put towards text books and course materials in a variety of subjects.  

Large contributions - Substantial amounts from annual fund-raising activities have enabled school to purchase larger items these have included a laser cutter (DT) £9,000 and a new grand piano £19,712.  Parents also contributed £14,000 towards the Oliver Centre which opened in 2010 and £20,816 towards the installation of a new A/V system in the hall.

Centenary Garden - School asked the PTA to fund this legacy project to commemorate the Centenary and improve the schools infrastructure after the recent buildings expansion and increase in pupils (link to FAQ’s).  Individual parents have also kindly organised specific fund-raising initiatives for the fund such as the 100 mile cycle ride, Tesco Bags for Life scheme and a boat party.  The PTA also received a donation to the Fund from the Worshipful Company of Gardeners Charity Board and continue to raise funds for this project.  We made our first year’s target in 2016 and look on track to do so again in 2017 thanks to your continued support.
