FOSTW Friends

FOSTW Friends of Snape & Thornton Watlass School


The Friends of the Federation are an enthusiastic committee of parents working hard on behalf of the School to help raise funds to support ongoing financial commitments of the School and improve the children's learning experience. We aim to have fun as well as enabling staff and parents to get to know each other better and so building a close school community. 


The Friends organise numerous events and fundraising activities throughout the school calendar such as Christmas cards, school discos, refreshment support for Snape 5k & 10k, Christmas crafts, football and fun and much more! Delicious food and refreshments are always provided and the events are always fully supported by the wider community. 


What do you get out of it? 


Becoming involved in the FOSTW is a great way to get more involved with the school. You can help raise funds which directly benefit your child’s education. 


What we need from you ... 


  • Please support the events that are held during the year. Please come along, help raise funds for the school and meet some new people.
  • Give a little time. There are always lots of things to do whether it’s selling tickets for a quiz night or helping at the Summer Disco! If you would like to help out either on a regular or adhoc basis, please let us know. 
  • Come along to the Friends Meetings. The meetings provide a great opportunity to find out what 'Friends' are doing and have your say in what is being planned. 
  • More information about Friends activities are published in the school newsletter, on Facebook or on the parent's noticeboard outside each site.
