On Friday 30th September, we will be holding our first ‘Friends of THA’ (FoTHA) event which will be a Coffee Morning in support of ‘The World's Biggest Coffee Morning’ to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support. 

We would like invite you, along with your friends and family, to join us in The Academy Café between 9.15am and 10.30am.  Young children are most welcome to attend with their Parents/Carers.  As it is a normal school day, with the event taking place during lesson time, visitors will be asked to wear visitor badges on arrival.

This fundraising event will be the ideal opportunity to meet other Parents/Carers, members of the School Leadership Team and the FoTHA team, whilst also helping to raise money for a really valuable cause.  If you are keen to support The Academy in forging strong links with Parents/Carers and families, we will also be happy to let you know more about joining FoTHA during the event.

In preparation for the event, some of our catering students, along with their teacher Mr Martin, will be baking cakes and biscuits, but we are also asking for cake and cookie donations please. We would be thrilled to receive home-made and shop bought cupcakes, fruit loaves, chocolate cookies, lemon drizzle cakes and fairy cakes to name but a few. 

We respectfully ask that if cakes or cookies contain nuts that they are labelled clearly, no peanuts please. Any "free from" cakes that are suitable for allergy sufferers are most welcome so everyone can enjoy a treat. 

Please can cakes and cookies be delivered to The Academy Reception on the morning of Friday 30th September. 

To find out more about the work of Macmillan Cancer Support and recipe ideas, please visit their website  

In order to plan for the event, please can you indicate on the on line Booking Form here if you are able to attend and if you will be able to donate cakes and cookies. 

For those who are unable to attend if you would like to make a donation we will be setting up a ‘Macmillan Just Giving’ page which you can access below: 

We very much look forward to welcoming you into school on Friday 30th September.
