Events & Fundraising
Throughout the school year the PA hosts a variety of events – do get involved or just come along and enjoy them!
At the start of each school year we invite people to join our 500 Club. There are 10 monthly draws each with a top prize of £100 and the 60 prizes up for grabs throughout the year result in a total prize pot of £2,250.
The Big Colyton Art Show
A weekend exhibition and sale of art from professional artists and Colyton students, runs every other year. There is also a shop selling smaller gift items and a café. For more information visit www.thebigcolytonartshow.co.uk
Each year the PA organise summer and winter raffle draws. With really fantastic prizes on offer, this is a great and easy way to support the school whilst also having the chance of winning some amazing goods and experiences!
Fun Family Quiz
Our first Fun Family Quiz was held via Zoom during the winter lockdown in 2021 as a way to connect our community whilst we could not be together. It was such a success we have continued quizzing!
Our online auction is held every other year. The lots have been exciting and varied including, a week stay in a secluded holiday cottage on the Isle of Harris, a signed rugby shirt and various activity days.
Colyton Garden & Food Festival
The Festival is traditionally held at the school in May. Many stalls offer a wide variety of produce and products, from local food producers, craft stalls and specialist nurseries. There are also the added attractions of a BBQ, cream teas, raffle, tombola, music entertainment by the students and a children’s activity area. Find out more at: www.colytongardenfoodfestival.uk
Each year the PA organise summer and winter raffle draws. We have had impressive prizes such as a £350 voucher for Salcombe Harbour Hotel, dining vouchers for the Pig at Combe and a Fortnum and Mason hamper. This is a great and easy way to support the school whilst also having the chance of winning some amazing experiences.
Every summer, the school holds an after-school fete late in the final term. It is organised by the (mostly younger) students. There is always a great theme and a great array of entertainment, stalls, games and refreshments. The PA runs uniform, books and refreshment stalls.
