Rutlish PTA are known for their famously fun Quiz Nights, wine tastings, Welcome Barbeques and other parent/carer social events. We also regularly support the school at official events, such as the Open Evening for prospective students, and Parents’ Evenings, and every other event or opportunity to raise money to help support the school and the education of the students.

Parents/carers of Rutlish students automatically become members of the PTA. Membership is also open to staff and friends of the school. Members are also involved in the Rutlish Foundation and the Old Rutlishians to promote communication between all parties interested in Rutlish School.

Some examples of what the PTA has funded over the last few years are: sports kit, sports day medals, 6th form laptops, SEND department computers, equipment for the Science department, further support for pupil premium students, Media Studies equipment, library shelving, linguaphone equipment, Place2Be wellbeing equipment and the Memorial Garden.

PTA meetings are held twice a term. These are informal and are open to all parents/carers and staff. Dates are found in the school calendar. Every other meeting is either a forum meeting where a member of staff or governor is invited to give a short talk about life at Rutlish or is a general meeting where the usual issues are discussed, and funding applications are approved.
