Please note: As from the 1st September 2019, FoBS will be called The AVA PTA, - a new 'whole school' initiative.

The AVA PTA (formerly FoBS)

Welcome to the PTA section of our website. The AVA PTA is very active and raises thousands of pounds every year to enhance the education of the children at the school.  The PTA is a way for parents and carers of children in the academy to come together and help support the work of the school.


We're a friendly, welcoming group and all parents are automatically members. Please come along to a meeting or speak to a committee member if you'd like to find out more, alternatively email

We organise a number of fun events for Parents, Children and the Community. These include:

  • Bingo
  • Quiz
  • Discos
  • Magic Show
  • Christmas Fair
  • Film Afternoons

We have recently contributed towards the following trips/experiences:

  • Outdoor toys for Primary school
  • Trip to the Zoo for KS1
  • Farm Experience for Early Years
  • Year 6 Residential
  • Year 4 Residential
  • Pantomime for all Primary children
