The Friends of Stanhope School (FOSS) is a fundraising organisation consisting of parents, grandparents and staff. We regularly hold events to raise money for extra resources for the school. In the past 12 months we have organised a fashion show, school fairs, film clubs, discos and cake sales. With the money raised we have helped redevelop the library, buy playtime equipment and purchase books- plus much more. The schools budget doesn't stretch to cover these expenses which help to enhance the provision the children receive. We also raise money for charities: Action Aid, Macmillan and the Altzheimers Association. We appreciate any help - maybe you have some fundraising ideas, you would like to man a stall or have some free time and simply want to help towards a good cause. We are a friendly team and welcome all. If you would like to join us please contact the office.
Spooky disco - what an amazing night! Over 250 children joined us for a fun-filled evening of scare! The event was a huge success with overwhelming support from parents. A BIG thank you to all the parents that contributed to making it a remarkable night for the children. A record breaking £900 was raised!

Christmas Fair 2018.
The Friends of Stanhope School would like to say a big thank you to all the families that contributed to making the Christmas Fair such a huge success! Maybe you donated a raffle prize, baked some cakes, bought a raffle ticket, helped set up the hall or simply turned up to the event. Without all of you kindly showing your support these events would not be possible. Together we raised over £600 for the school along with £150 towards Year 6's trip to France! We look forward to more fun events next year, raising lots more together to support our school. Thank you!
