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 Curry & Quiz Night, Auction of Promises and Car Boot Sales.

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);
  • The provision of dining furniture for the dining hall in the new Armitage building;
  • The refurbishment of various areas of school;
  • Duke of Edinburgh award equipment; and
  • Special Educational Needs resources.

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.
