Parent Teacher Association (PTA)

The PTA work hard to support the school and help provide those little extras which make Holmfirth High such a great place.

Amongst other things, we have recently provided the school with:

  • A new set of laptops for the geography department to enhance teaching and learning opportunities
  • New stage curtains for the hall
  • A laser cutter for the DT department
  • Benches for the playground
  • Equipment for the war hammer club

In addition to raising money, we support staff by providing refreshments for concerts, school productions and events.

    What is AmazonSmile?

    AmazonSmile is a simple and automatic way for you to support a charity of your choice every time you shop, at no cost to you. AmazonSmile is available at smile.amazon.co.uk on your web browser and can be activated in the Amazon Shopping App for iOS and Android phones. When you shop AmazonSmile, you’ll find the exact same low prices, vast selection and convenient shopping experience as amazon.co.uk, with the added bonus that AmazonSmile will donate a portion of the purchase price to your selected charity.

    How do I shop at AmazonSmile?

    To shop at AmazonSmile simply go to smile.amazon.co.uk on your web browser or activate AmazonSmile on your Amazon Shopping app on your iOS or Android phone (found under ‘settings’ on your app). On your browser, you may also want to add a bookmark to smile.amazon.co.uk to make it even easier to return and start your shopping at AmazonSmile. When you’re using the app, always check for the “AmazonSmile” logo to ensure you’re activated for AmazonSmile.

    How do I activate AmazonSmile on my Amazon Shopping app?

    AmazonSmile customers on Android devices with version 5.0+ or iOS devices with version 12+, who have upgraded to the latest version of the Amazon Shopping app can find “AmazonSmile” listed in the Settings menu. From there, you can follow onboarding instructions to activate AmazonSmile on your device.

    Can I use my existing Amazon.co.uk account on AmazonSmile?

    Yes, you use the same account on amazon.co.uk and AmazonSmile. Your shopping cart, Wish List, wedding or baby registry, and other account settings are also the same.

    How do I select a charitable organisation to support when shopping on AmazonSmile?

    On your first visit to smile.amazon.co.uk, you need to select a charitable organisation to receive donations from eligible purchases before you begin shopping. We will remember your selection, and then every eligible purchase you make through AmazonSmile will result in a donation. AmazonSmile will occasionally contact you about donation amounts disbursed to your chosen charity or about the programme.

    How can I change my charity?

    Yes, you can change your charity any time. Your AmazonSmile purchases after the change count towards your newly selected charity. To change your charity on your web browser, simply select “Change your Charity” in “Your Account.” You can also visit AmazonSmile under settings on your Amazon Shopping app and select “Change your Charity.”
