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.
The PTFA Uniform Shop is open on Wednesdays 5pm to 7pm and Saturdays 10am to 12noon.
Any purchases in the Uniform Shop can be paid for using MAESTRO, DELTA, VISA, MASTERCARD or CASH. Please note that special order items (i.e. not in stock) can take between eight to 10 weeks to arrive from the supplier.
This order form effective from Saturday 25th February, 2017 can also be printed off and returned to the academy reception, to be collected and processed by the PTFA on a Wednesday or Saturday (term-time only). Further details of any additional opening times and how to order the uniform are available from the academy’s reception on 01253 882815. Poulton Sports and Trophy Centre Ltd, on Chapel Street, Poulton, also stocks Hodgson uniforms and PE kits.
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.
Parents are also welcome to join our Parent Forum meetings which follow each PTFA meeting at 7.30 pm – details via the following link.
