What The Friends Do

We are passionate about our school and helping the children be the best they can be. Over the years we have raised money to help the school in numerous ways. 


We are always looking for new fundraising ideas and opportunities, but we usually raise money through fun events and initiatives:

    - Summer Fete - Christmas Fayre  -  Christmas cards -  Tea and cake afternoons  -  Bags to School

Last year we also held Film Nights for the children, an Easter egg competition as well as school discos.

If you have any ideas, please do let us know.


The Friends also help with the Christmas and Summer Parties, provide refreshments at school events, provide leaving gifts for Year 6 along side the Governors and provide a First Holy Communion gift


Spending money to enrich the children’s education

Each year we choose a project that we fundraise for, this project will directly benefit the children of the school and their education.
