Highfields Parents, Teachers & Friends Association

Highfields PTFA is a group of parents and teachers who raise money to financially support projects and equipment that enhance the education of Highfields pupils.

All parents and friends of the school are welcome to join and we always appreciate the fresh ideas that new members bring.

If you are interested in joining us please contact secretary Helen Megginson or feel free to turn up to one of our meetings.


The PFTA has signed up to easyfundraising.

There are over 4,000 shops and sites on board ready to make a donation – including eBay, Argos, John Lewis, ASOS, Booking.com and M&S – and it won’t cost you a penny extra to help us raise funds.

All you need to do is:

  1. Go to Highfields School Matlock PFTA Fundraising | Easyfundraising and join for free.
  1. Every time you shop online, go to easyfundraising first to find the site you want and start shopping.
  2. After you’ve checked out, the retailer will make a donation to Highfields School Matlock PFTA at no extra cost to you whatsoever!

There are no catches or hidden charges and we will be really grateful for your donations, especially as our opportunities to raise funds have been very much reduced over the last year.

Thank you for your support.

Green Envelope Scheme

Every year we send out a letter asking for monetary donations, via our green envelope scheme.

The PTFA can claim back Tax Relief through giftaid thus boosting the amount raised by 28p for every £1 given, for the projects and equipment we fund.


Any school department interested in applying for funds from the PTFA for a particular project can find details of how to apply on the shared area.
