Helping and joining the UPA

It's harder to meet other parents at secondary school but by coming along to UPA events you'll get to know other people and feel more involved in a friendly and welcoming atmosphere.

We help raise much needed funds for the school by supporting and helping at events such as: Quiz Nights, Race Nights, School Performances, the Carol Service, Doughnut Day, Nearly New Uniform Sales among others.These events have helped support the school by providing funds to purchase the minibus, sound system, curtains, desks, outdoor seating areas and more.

We need to collect items which can be used to generate money by way of raffle tickets. If you, or your company, are able to donate any form of gift, voucher or ticket of entry in to places of interest or events, or you are interested in joining our team, please contact us on: UPA@ursulinehigh.merton.sch.uk

If you shop online for food, books, games, presents or even holidays, just click on this link first and you can earn us a commission on your purchase. There is no extra cost to you.

All you have to do is access www.easyfundraising.org.uk and you will be taken to a page where there is a list of hundreds of retailers who support the scheme. From this page you click through to the website of the retailer you want to buy from, e.g. Tesco, Sainsburys, John Lewis, M&S, Next, Argos, Amazon…. and the list goes on!

Anything you purchase will earn us a commission…IT’S THAT SIMPLE! It’s important to mention that, unlike other websites, Easy Fundraising doesn’t take payment information and won’t pass your details to anyone without your permission.
