The Trafalgar School Association
The Trafalgar School at Downton is very lucky and proud to have an active, supportive and effective parent association (TSA). It is one of the school’s strengths and one of which we are very proud.
The aim of the TSA is to develop effective relationships between the staff, parents and others associated with the school, and to engage in fund raising activities in order to provide facilities or equipment which support the school and advance the education of the students. This is achieved and managed by our active and committed Chair and Committee members. We are very grateful for the time and effort its members devote to the school and for the funds that they raise.
We are actively seeking, and would welcome, enthusiastic parents with fresh ideas to attend our informal meetings. We schoolcomms parents with upcoming meeting dates, which are all held locally to the school, in the early evening. If you would like to know more about any aspect of our work or would like to get involved, please contact the TSA via the following email address: firstname.lastname@example.org. The TSA are also on facebook click here.

- 100 Club Draws
- The Cuckoo Fair (Saturday May Bank Holiday)
The TSA 100 Club gives parents, carers and friends of the school, the opportunity to support the TSA, and to win cash prizes in a monthly draw. This costs just £12 per year, offers 2 monthly prizes of £30 and £20, and can be joined at any time throughout the year. Half of the money raised is used for the students’ benefit, and the more members we have, the bigger the prizes!
If anyone wishes to join the club or increase the number of numbers that they have in the draw, as there is no limit, an application form and a copy of the 100 Club rules can be downloaded by clicking on the links below.
We would please urge you to join, and if you have any questions about the 100 Club, please contact the TSA via the following email address: email@example.com.
