We are the Cheney School ‘Parent-Teacher Association (PTA)’ – open to all parents/carers and staff of Cheney School.


Cheney Friends helps the school to keep in touch with parents, runs social events and raises money for the school.

  • Our fundraising has bought: a grand piano, new sound system for the assembly hall, cooking equipment, library furniture, rowing blades for Cheney Falcon Rowing Club …
  • We have also donated to activities such as the Year 11 Prom, Cowley Road carnival team …
  • We provide refreshments at school shows and other events, such as the parent/staff cricket match.
  • We have organised events at school such as Quiz Nights and pre-election Hustings.

We support events led by staff to engage with parents about different aspects of the school and their child’s education:

  • Welcome evenings for new parents
  • Presentations by staff on their subject areas
  • and other aspects of interest to parents, e.g. homework & uniform
