The Thomas Keble Parent Teachers Association (TK PTA) is an organisation of parents, staff and friends of the school who work together to support the life of the school and raise funds through various activities including a successful 100 Club.
Events have included our very successful fireworks display over a number of years, bingo nights, family pub quizzes, entertainment from Tweedy the Clown, and cheese and wine tastings.
Thomas Keble School owes a huge thank you to the TK PTA committee, in particular Gail Shiner and Jeanette Dangerfield, for all the hard work that went into organising and manning the “Total Wipeout” inflatable at Chalfest on 21 July! An enormous £2,340 was raised for the benefit of the children at the school! This is in addition to all the PTA have achieved over the year 2017-2018. We are all extremely grateful.

Saturday 22 September 2018 at 7.30pm : Metz Big Band at Thomas Keble School
The TK PTA is delighted to announce an evening’s entertainment on Saturday 22 September 2018 provided by the Metz Big Band, featuring our own Mr Alan Dwight on keyboards! The band plays some traditional big band music, classic jazz plus arrangements of some well-known pop rock songs! Tickets, available from the school office, cost £15 per person and include a drink from the bar, and artisan bread and a selection of cheeses served during the interval. A great opportunity to socialise with family and friends, sit and relax, or get up and dance!
The TK PTA welcomes new members and new ideas. We currently meet at the Ram Inn, Bussage, two or three times a term, usually on a Monday evening. Meetings are advertised via the School Calendar. Please do come along and meet us!

Firework Night at TK 2017!
Thank you to all those from both the school and local community who joined us on Thursday 2 November 2017 for the annual Thomas Keble firework display. The conditions were perfect as the sky lit up with a stunning display lasting over 20 minutes. Thank you, too, to all the staff and parents who manned the ever popular BBQ and refreshment stalls. The Jesse Smith burgers and hotdogs were a hit with everyone, selling out in record time! It was possibly our most well-attended fireworks in the last few years with over £1000 raised, with all money going towards the cost of a new indoor social space for pupils.
