Friends of Purley Way, who are we.....

Friends of Purley Way, who are we.....

We are a group of parents with a passion for our children's education, helping to build a wonderful school. We are looking forward to advancing our children's experience at HPAPW through fun events and developing an effective relationship between parents and staff. We established ourselves in Autumn of 2016 when the academy first opened and our first event was a Cultural Day, which was held on the 3rd December 2016. This was a fun and successful day, with the help of the Teachers and Parents attending regular meetings outside of school hours and working hard to ensure the day went well, we were able to raise money for the PTA fund and also donate some towards Crisis Charity. This was followed by two more events; the " Easter Fun Day" and ‘Year End Party’.


As we welcomed a new academic year we have strengthened in numbers and ideas and we have just hosted the second very popular ‘Cultural Day’, recognising and celebrating cultures, food, music, games and festivities from all over the world to mirror our multi-cultural community. This took place on the 18th December 2017 and proved to be a huge success once again.  Prizes donated to the raffle from local companies included: Gift Vouchers for Wing Yip, Nando's, Winter Car Kit from Halfords and Board Games from Winning Moves.  We raised lots of money for the academy it will be used to support children’s extra-curricular learning.


As the year goes on we look forward to doing more exciting things with the children.
