FOSS (Friends of Stanhope School)

Welcome to the Friends of Stanhope School page (FOSS)!

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 Alzheimers 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. 

We are looking forward to showing families round our school, ready for the September 2024 Reception intake. You can book a visit by contacting the school office on 0115 9553440.
