Friends of Highfields

Who are we?

Friends of Highfields (FOH) stands for the Friends of Highfields Spencer Academy which will be a non-profit making, volunteer organisation, similar to a PTA. FOH will be run and organised by parents, teachers and friends of the school. Our aim will be to support the school and enhance the children’s school experience. We will raise funds to pay for additional resources for the school, providing equipment and additional facilities.

It may be that you have particular strengths in organising, fundraising, finances etc and would be able to give us some time during the school year, or you may even like to join our committee, which we hope will meet once a half term to organise events for our children and the community such as school discos, bingo nights, Christmas and Summer Fayres.

We hope to raise money for the following types of things for our school:

  • Coach fares for school trips
  • Christmas class presents for the Infants
  • Panto tickets
  • PE equipment
  • Books
  • Prizes for competitions


Examples of funded items may also be:

  • Trim Trail with artificial grass matting
  • Musical instruments (hand-bells)
  • Garden furniture or plants for our secret garden or new Forest school area
  • New furniture for the library


Why we need your support?

Friends of Highfields (FOH) can only operate with the support of parents (dads and mums, grandparents, carers, etc) and teachers. We are looking for new members to help us to continue to evolve our fundraising. Your ideas and involvement can help improve the quality of education for all the children at our school. We need your help, whatever your skills or time available. Everyone has something to offer. Please get in touch! We can work together to support our school.
