Worsley Bridge PTFA

Our School PTFA

The PTFA brings families, teachers and our local community together to raise funds to support the school and enables us to enrich the children’s education. We cover costs of things which the school budget doesn’t cover and provide extra fun & learning opportunities for the children. The team is responsible for planning, budgeting, and running events. However, most events cannot run without the support of additional volunteers. Everyone is welcome at our PTFA meetings and all members of the WB community are encouraged to get involved in any way they can. We currently hold mid-week evening meetings in Beckenham, which works best with the busy working schedules of the current committee.


The Green Team

The Worsley Bridge Primary School Green Team PTFA members are as follows: 

  • Aliex Holliday – Sustainability Lead,
  • Antonia Lewis & Martha Leung Sustainability Coordinators.
