Friends of Abbeyfields School (FoAS) - About Us

Save Cancel

Friends of Abbeyfields School is a registered charity made up of parents and guardians of children at the school, school staff and members of the local communit

Our aim is to raise funds for enhancing the educational provision of the children at the school by funding services and resources not usually provided by the Local Education Authority. FoAS also has a social function, and allows the parents and school staff to work closely together to promote good Citizenship.

FoAS works very hard to raise funds for the school, and is justly proud of its successes. In the past funds have been raised to help subsidise specialised tuition in music and sports, buy essential classroom equipment and to pay for visiting theatre groups, paid for the modular stage equipment for the North Hall, and enhancements to the playground.

Our biggest annual fund-raisers, the Christmas and Summer Fairs, are by now almost legendary, and attract many hundreds of visitors each year. A great deal of effort goes into providing a broad balance of activities and stalls so that there is something to interest everyone who comes along, and they are always a tremendous success.

The success of our fairs and other fund-raising ventures is testimony to the large body of supportive parents and members of staff who work very hard to ensure that FoAS can continue to provide very necessary resources and services for Abbeyfields, as well as many of the little ‘extras’ which can make all the difference to the children’s time at the school.
