Friends of Highfields School (FOHS)

With the enthusiastic assistance of parents, carers, grandparents, children and staff, Friends of Highfields School (FOHS) run a wide variety of social and fundraising events, from Quiz Nights to the Summer Fayre.

Friends of Highfields School aims to:

  • Raise funds to enhance the quality of school life at Highfields and to supplement the limited budget available to the school
  • Help provide the opportunity for social interaction outside the school's normal parameters.

These goals are achieved by the organisation of a varied range of events throughout the school year. The funds raised by these events are then donated to the school to purchase equipment, books, treats and other resources needed for the children.

Here are some of the events organised by FOHS during the school year:

  • Adults' Quiz Night
  • Disco
  • Christmas, Spring and Summer Fayres
  • Fizz Fashion Show
  • Blitz Family Fireworks Event

In addition, we also run fabric recycling through Bags2Schools twice a year and ink cartridge recycling through Empties Please, for which there is a donation box in the school reception.

Donations to the School:

The additional funds raised through FOHS, have been used to pay for things like:

  • Coaches for the Christmas Trips
  • iPads/iPad Minis
  • New equipment such as a PA System
  • Play equipment
  • Outdoor classroom
  • Contribution for every class towards a school trip each year
  • Leavers gifts and party
  • The Book Bag that each new starter receives

Get involved:

If you would like to get involved by joining the committee or volunteering to help at one of the events, please contact us at or via your Class Representative. Parents and carers are strongly encouraged to attend our regular meetings.

Please remember, funds raised by FOHS benefit every child at Highfields and we cannot run these events without your support.
