PAFA (which is the same as a PTA) exists to enhance the educational experience of the students (our daughters) at Wycombe High School. We are very keen to be the 'bridge' between the school and parents/carers as, once our girls go to "big school", the playground contact is lost.  We do this by organising events and activities which provide opportunities for everyone to meet up and get to know each other.  Whilst doing this we also raise funds which supplement school projects.  For academic year 2017 - 2018 we will continue to raise funds to improve the seating area within the Forum (and hopefully expand it).

As parents / guardians of students at Wycombe High School, you are automatically members of PAFA and are welcome to attend all of the meetings.  The dates for meetings can be found on the school calendar (search PAFA) and are held in the meeting room inside the Learning Centre.  We try to keep meetings fast moving and interesting - starting at 7.30 pm and completed by 9.30 pm.  The next PAFA meeting will be as below - do come along and meet us, hear what goes on and get involved.  All PAFA dates can be found on the school calendar here.

Tuesday 15 May 2019 - 7.30 pm in the Learning Centre

You can contact us via email at any time - pafa@whs.bucks.sch.uk.  We will try and respond to you as soon as possible.

Events planned for 2018 - 2019 include:

  • Family Photo Shoots - watch out for ParentMails about these
  • Discounted Theatre tickets - publicised in ParentMails - only for sale online
  • PAFA meeting 19 March 19.30 hrs in the Learning Centre
  • PAFA meeting 15 May 19.30 hrs in the Learning Centre
  • PAFA meeting 11 June 19.30hrs in the Learning Centre

Watch out for details on these events and information on how to book.  We email parents/carers via the school so please ensure your contact details are up to date with the school office.

One of the easiest ways of supporting your daughter (via PAFA) is by joining the 200 Club. 

The Wycombe High School 200 Club is our most consistent means of raising funds and a great way to have some fun by simply buying one or more numbers in our monthly draw.

Half the proceeds pay for additional school facilities and equipment and the other half is distributed in prizes.  The first prize is currently £200; second prize £75 and third prize £25 - prizes drawn every month!

The more Club members there are, the larger the first prize. Your chances of winning are considerably better than the lottery, so by requesting more than one number, you have more chances to win! *

Join the 200 Club today – support the school and be in with a chance to win.  Make sure you are not missing out.

Simply complete the form including Bank Standing Order and send the whole form to:

Via post:  PAFA 200 Club, Wycombe High School, High Wycombe, Bucks HP11 1TB

PAFA has subscribed to the Spend and Raise E-store.  This is an online shopping portal that links to a large variety of online shopping sites.

Visit us on our website. Each time you visit one of the sites from “Spend and Raise” and make a purchase, the PAFA gets a commission payment. We have hundreds of retailers on board (selling insurance, utilities, furniture and holidays as well as clothes, chocolates, books, flowers and other gift items).

So if you are shopping on-line, booking a holiday, buying office supplies, stationery, books, telephones, insurance, computers or furniture, please explore our e-store site and tell your friends about it.

In a similar way, you can also contribute directly to school funds by buying your Amazon.co.uk  goods through our Amazon link. You pay nothing more, but the school will get a small percentage of every pound you spend.
