Friends of Hamilton - PTA
FoH is the 'Parent Teacher Association' for Hamilton Academy. All parents are members of the FoH automatically and can attend the many events and fundraising activities run throughout the year. FoH is a registered charity dedicated to improving the life of the school and the pupils.
Why not get involved or even join the committee? We're a very friendly bunch!
FoH runs a very active group on Facebook, informing parents of upcoming events, looking for parent volunteers etc and we would encourage all of you to join - if you can't get involved in a hands-on capacity yourself, you can at least keep up-to-date with events FoH is organising for the school by joining the online group.
FoH has another Facebook group for advertising any pieces of uniform you no longer need for private direct sale to other parents, so please take a look every time you're in need of a new Hamilton Academy jumper, polo shirt, bookbag or hat before you go to the M&S website for a brand new one!

It is that time of year again - FoH need a new committee!
We will be holding an Annual General Meeting (big chit chat) on Thursday 5 October in the hall at Hampden Road at 7.30pm to 9.00pm.
We will be electing a new committee and we have positions to fill so please come along and see what it is all about.
We will also be electing Class Representatives (parents who work as a point of contact for their child's class and liaise with FoH - a great way to start getting involved in your child's school).
If you are even a little bit nosey or slightly interested in seeing what Friends of Hamilton is about or keen to help out at events or meet some other Hamilton Academy parents, then please do come along - we don't bite.
We really do need help from parents in the school to continue raising funds for the kids, we quite simply can't do it without you. FoH really does make a difference.
FoH has purchased tickets for the following productions at Wycombe Swan, and is passing on fantastic savings to Hamilton parents.
Click on the link under the images below for electronic order forms. Paper copies of order forms are available from the school offices - these should be completed and returned to FoH via the post boxes in the offices at both sites.
