Parent Teacher Association (PTA)

The PTA works to raise additional funds for school that enhance the enrichment and education of all our students. Extra funds also support a range of projects that the school would otherwise struggle to hold within existing budgets.

Each year we run a series of fundraising activities such as our cafe's at the Ilkley Literature Events at the school,  Wine Tasting evening, Quiz Night, Auction of Promises and other cafe's at school events. 

In past years we have funded:

  • The IGS Bursary (available to provide financial assistance to students who otherwise would not be able to afford to participate in trips and enrichment opportunities);

PTA made recent significant grants for seating benches used in the 'ping pong area' during lunch, chess-club's timing clocks and a lot of professional foamex large scale photos of pupil's art work and photos of student's academic, and other school activities:- this helps promote interest and discussion among pupils and showcases the school. Smart corridors promote a caring attitude among the school community.

You can also help to raise money via IGS Marketplace on Facebook by selling your 'pre-loved' school items.

This is a group for Ilkley Grammar School parents and staff to buy and sell second hand school uniform, sports wear and sports equipment, miscellaneous educational equipment, books etc, to raise funds for the PTA. Please provide a description, photo and asking price with your post. Once sold, we ask the sellers to make a donation (50% suggested minimum) to the PTA using Parentpay to the school office. Thank you!
