The PTFA has a shop on the academy premises that sells Hodgson uniforms directly from the manufacturer, thus bypassing high street retailers. This gives parents the opportunity to purchase high-quality uniforms at competitive prices. It also enables the PTFA to raise funds for the academy.
All profits made by the shop are put back into the academy, which benefits all students. In recent years, monies raised by the PTFA have helped towards funding a new performing arts studio, purchasing a new mini bus, improving academy buildings and boosting our specialist teaching and sporting equipment. The academy is immensely grateful for the wonderful work undertaken by Hodgson’s PTFA.
Your pack of uniform items will be made up and you will receive a confirmation e mail giving details of when it will be available for collection in line with the above days / times. The preferred method of payment will be bank transfer but arrangements will be in place for debit card / credit card payment on collection of the uniform. Whilst we would prefer that cash is not used, if this is absolutely necessary arrangements will be put in place.
Full details of the school uniform and an order form are provided below. By completing the order form we ask that you return it to us at the e mail address provided.
We are very conscious that sometimes an item of clothing does not fit. Arrangements will be in place for you to return items to us, exchanges to take place and where necessary for you to access the Shop for your child to try on a new size. Where this needs to take place an appropriate appointment time will be arranged for this to happen. Exchanges will only be agreed where there is proof of purchase, so please keep your original till receipt when it is issued.
Parents / carers are encouraged to continue to use the above process wherever possible. However, the Shop is now open as ‘normal’ on Wednesday evenings (5.00 -7.00 pm) and Saturday mornings (10.00 am – 12.00 pm).
To ensure the safety of everyone involved only 2 family units will be allowed in the Shop at any one time. A family unit in this instance is classed as one parent / carer and one child. There is plenty of room outside of the Shop, including covered space for people to wait whilst socially distancing. Your patience in this respect is much appreciated. You will also be aware of the new requirement for face coverings to worn when visiting any retail establishment.
I know that you will appreciate that the arrangements described above have been established to protect everybody’s health and safety during these unprecedented times.

Parent Teacher Friend Association

All parents can volunteer as members of Hodgson’s Parent Teacher Friend Association (PTFA). This group continually carries out vital fundraising on behalf of students and the academy.
Time commitments could vary according to your own personal circumstances; essentially any help is greatly appreciated. Volunteers are always needed to help in the uniform shop, with the catering at academy events or sharing the decision-making during committee meetings as to how funds raised by the group are spent within the academy.
There are four PTFA committee meetings earmarked each academy year, starting at 6.30pm. The committee always welcomes new members.
