The Parents, Teachers and Friends Association for Hope Valley College is very active in support of the school.  They are busy organising fundraising events throughout the year, including:


PTFA Great Virtual Balloon Race

The PTFA is excited to be hosting their very first virtual balloon race.  You can enjoy the thrill of releasing your virtual balloons off into the world to see how far it travels - all without the environmental impact.  the balloons cost £2 each, and there are £30 and £20 Amazon vouchers for the balloons that cross the finish line in first and second place. The deadline for buying your balloon is Wednesday 8 February 2023.

As with all PTFA events, funds raised will be used to further enhance the opportunities available to HVC students. 

Benefitting All Hope Valley Students

In recent years, support from the PTFA has helped Hope Valley College refurbish its library and geography classrooms.  It has provided a 3D printer for use in the Design and Technology Department, benches for students' use at breaktime and lunchtime and new goalposts on the football pitches.  The school also has the PTFA to thank for the fantastically cheerful refurbished restaurant.

Get involved

Anyone from our community who wants to support the school is welcome to get involved. If you are the parent or carer of a new student, due to start at Hope Valley in September, getting involved with the PTFA is a great way to get to know the school.

The PTFA would love to hear from you if you can provide great ideas for fund-raising opportunities, and help to make them happen.
