Brondesbury College PTA is a representative body comprising of parents and teachers of pupils at Brondesbury College who have volunteered to support the school in maintaining its superb standards. We meet once every six weeks for a Coffee Morning to hear parents’ input and insight into matters concerning the school and also to discuss fundraising ideas and extra-curricular activities.
The school’s mission is to strive to provide the best education in a secure Islamic environment through the knowledge and application of the Quran and Sunnah. The school seeks to maintain excellence in academic standards whilst participating in many extra curricula and inter-faith activities to ensure that the pupils are not only strong and knowledgeable in their faith but also equipped to be fully integrated and positive members of the wider community. BCB PTA‘s main goal is to have as many parents as possible supporting our students to be highly qualified for our dynamic fast-paced 21st century environment.
By helping the school, parents will be providing the tools we need to guide our Muslim students to not only succeed, but to excel in their chosen fields of study, INSHAA ALLAH.
At BCB we realize that each of our families is unique – with its own priorities, needs, talents, and time constraints .- and BCB PTA try to provide as many different kinds of opportunities for parental involvement as possible. We do not need funding raising only, we need to know that you are interested in what we do. We need your skills and your suggestions. Put simply, we need YOU to get involved in our Parents & Teachers Committee. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know how you would like to GET INVOLVED.
Why join BCB PTA?
To support the school that supports our children in so many ways. I use the term our children deliberately,because here at BCB, we believe we are an extension from home. We are all part of a big family.I know that, together, we can make things happen. I know that, together, we can do the best for our children.

Management & Organisation
There are meetings at least twice a term to discuss and plan activities and also to discuss issues of general interest to the school community. These are open meetings, and everyone is welcome.The minutes of these meetings will be sent via email to all who have registered their details with BCB PTA.
The detailed planning and organisation of individual events/activities is handled by an individual or a sub-committee drawn from volunteers. You do not have to be a class rep to get involved in helping to run an event. New officers and class reps are appointed each year at the AGM and a full list of class reps and their telephone numbers is circulated to parents shortly after this.
1. Meetings once every six weeks at 4pm, School Library
2. Coffee Morning last MONDAY of the month at 9am, School Canteen
3. PTA Tuck Shop every Friday from 10am to 11am – parents volunteers taking turns
4. BCB BBQ – once a year Spring Term
5. Year 11 leaver’s farewell party
Accounts summary of funds raised and expenditures is available for your perusal at reception or upon request.
One of our central aims is to ease communications and social contact within the school community. Your class rep is your main point of contact for issues of general interest or concern relating to school life, and of course for any ideas/suggestions you may have concerning BCB PTA and its activities. BCB PTA, however, cannot deal with concerns that you may have relating to a specific student, an individual teacher or the manner in which the curriculum is handled. Concerns of this nature should always be discussed with the teacher and/or head teacher.
We usually communicate via email, SMS and / or by letter on a term basis to update you on activities, events or meetings.
