Who are FOSPS? 

FOSPS stands for the Friends Of St Paul's School.

We are a charity, registered with the Charity Commission (www.Charity-commission.gov.uk)  and our aim is to raise money to benefit the children by providing additional equipment and experiences that would otherwise not be available for them.

As we are a friends association, anyone with a child or grandchild at the school or with an interest in the welfare of the children is entitled to attend meetings and suggest how to raise money.

Any offer of help is greatly appreciated. Please come along to a meeting to help support your child in school.

Dates of meetings are advertised in advance on the parents noticeboard outside school, on Newsletters and on the website. Meetings are held monthly usually on a Friday afternoon in school

Committee members of FOSPS are:

Mrs M Pickard - Chair

Mrs S Clark- Vice Chair

Vacant- Secretary

Mrs L.Carter - Treasurer

Mrs A Gibson- Head

Mr J Eccleston

Mrs N. Campbell

New members are welcome. Although we do have regular helpers at events we are always on the lookout for new members. If you are interested in joining please contact school via the Bursar.

Without the generous backing of parents, grandparents and friends of the children of St. Paul's, the children themselves and, of course, the members of FOSPS who organise these events, none of this would have been possible.

 

100 Club

We also run a 100 club which all parents and grandparents can be part of. It only costs £1 per month to be a member and to be allocated a number. A draw takes place each month with the 1st, 2nd and 3rd names drawn out of a bag and the winners recieving a monetary prize. The more people we have in the club the more money the winners recieve with the remaining funds benefiting our children. If you wish to join please ask at the school office for a form.

Upcoming Events

We are planning lots of exciting events in the future. Watch this page for more information.
