We are a friendly group of parents/ staff aiming to raise funds to benefit the whole school. New faces are always welcome and we generally hold 6 meetings a year at the school. Get in touch, it’s a great way to ‘give a little back’ and get involved with your son’s school.

How/where have past raised funds been spent?

Thanks to your help, we’ve been able to fund the following;

  • New multipurpose clubhouse next to tennis courts
  • Mental health wellbeing services
  • Design and technology 3D printer
  • Library renovation
  •  Atlases for geography dept.
  •  Printmaking equipment for the art dept.
  • Camcorder for the DT/Science club
  • Foreign film club
  •  New dictionaries
  •  Remote control car for car club
  •  Equipment for the sport department

Whilst there are the current restrictions in place, we’ve been unable to do our regular fundraising events. In the meantime, please support your school charity virtually and share these five charitable fundraising ideas with your family and friends. Thank you so much.
