Who are we?
We are parents/grandparents within the school. We have a committee and a group of volunteers who regularly help at events.
Who is on the committee?
Jill Harrison (Chairperson)
Teresa Dixon (Treasurer)
Nyree Brown (Secretary)
What do we do?
We fundraise to provide things for the school that could not otherwise be funded. This ranges from big pieces of equipment to certain school trips.
What have FoHS funded in recent years?
Big equipment purchases have included the school stage and additions to the trim trail and replaced the school IT equipment. Each year we also fund the Christmas pantomime trip and the Year 6 leavers’ presents and contribute to the school music lessons within school. Painting the lobby in the locker area in the upper school area and we have also replaced fencing, painted the playground games and set up the growing beds for the school’s playground to plate classes.

How can you get involved?
We are looking for representatives from all years to join the committee – please speak to another Friend if you would be up for it!
We have an AGM and approximately 4 meetings per year to plan events, and then host several events (film nights, discos, bingo, fetes) throughout the year to raise funds for the school. All covid restrictions to be considered at the time.
As well as committee members, we also need an army of volunteers to help run events throughout the school year (film nights, discos, Christmas fayre, bingo summer fete). At the start of the academic year, you can volunteer to help at specific events, or please feel free to let one of the Friends know at any point.

We have a textiles recycling bin at the top end of the school car park by the gates. Please put all clothes, shoes, bags and linen for collection into plastic bags before putting inside.
