The PTA is incorporated and a Hong Kong registered charity, which is led by the Executive Committee, a group of highly motivated and dedicated volunteers. The principal activities of the Association are to improve educational outcomes by raising funds and facilitating relationship between the school teachers and the parents of students.

The Executive Committee (EC) of the PTA is made up of Parent Representatives (up to 12), Teacher Representatives (up to 3) and the School Principal. Parent representatives need to be nominated by existing EC members and are then elected each year during the Annual General Meeting (AGM). From the pool of Parent Representatives, the EC elects a Chairperson, Vice-Chairperson, Treasurer and a Secretary. The EC convenes about monthly.
The Chairperson of the PTA, is also a member of the Committee of Parents (COMPAR), which comprises all ESF School PTA Chairpersons as well as the ESF Senior Executives. The COMPAR meets each term to give advice and comment on affairs of the ESF Foundation as a whole.
The PTA also nominates one parent representative to sit on the Peak SCHOOL COUNCIL, which is effectively the Governing Body of The Peak School. In recent years, the Chairperson of the PTA has been this representative. Peak School parents can also elect one additional parent to be a 2nd member of the SCHOOL COUNCIL. This election might be organised by the SCHOOL COUNCIL and not the PTA.
