Help raise ยฃ200 to Hipsburn Primary Parent Teacher Association fundraising page for Christmas books and a much needed shed for the playground.

Your support is needed! Hipsburn Primary PTA has been unable to raise much needed funds which help your children so much at school. The PTA would still love to provide all children with a book for Christmas and the only way this can happen is by asking all of you, our fantastic supporters, to donate towards PTA funds. Priority from money raised will be given to supplying books and anything extra will go towards a new shed for storing sports equipment. If you can donate, please click on the link below, which takes you to our fundraising page. Thank you.

We are anticipating a busy winter and so, on behalf of the Trustees and Volunteers, thank you so much for your continued support. We could not do this without you.

This donation is from Hipsburn Primary School Thank you so much, from everyone at the ADFB.


The School Games Organiser team would like to invite and encourage you to join in our next School Games Virtual Challenge, to climb the 17 peaks of well known buildings, hills and mountains. This challenge is probably more suited to the home environment as it involves flights of stairs, but can be done on door steps or steppers ( 15 step ups = a flight of stairs). We would like not just pupils involved, but parents and teachers too! .
