Roots to grow, wings to fly

Friends of Alexander Hosea Primary School

Who are "The Friends"?

The Friends of Alexander Hosea School is a registered charity run by a dedicated group of parents, carers and teachers who work together with the school community to raise much needed additional funds for our school.

What do we do?

We usually arrange a variety of events and activities throughout the year which are not only fun but also help raise funds. We run children-only events such as the Discos and Movie nights, and family events such as our Fun Runs and Fairs, plus adult-only events like our ever popular Quiz Nights.

All our upcoming events are listed on our Forthcoming Events page. We also have a Facebook page which is kept updated with details of events and meetings, so please take a look and ‘like’ our page. Some of our past events include:

  • Children's Discos
  • Secret Gift Shops
  • Movie Nights
  • Craft and Produce Fair
  • Wickwar Games Fun Runs
  • Sponsored Events
  • Quiz Night
  • Circus Day
  • Christmas Fair
  • Sports Day Refreshments
  • Ice-cream Sales
  • Coffee/Cake/Breakfast Mornings

Why do we do it?

Over the years the money we raise has helped to purchase a variety of resources for the school or enrichment activities that benefit the children. Below is just a few of the things we have helped to provide. Without our fundraising, none of these would have been possible:

  • Whole School Trips (Theatre, Castles...)
  • Reception Class Book Bags for every child
  • Science Equipment
  • Non-fiction Library Books
  • Gardening Tools and Activities
  • Leaver's Gifts for Year 6 children
  • Mathletics Subscriptions
  • Classroom Learning Environments
  • Musical Instruments
  • Circus Day and Activities
  • 50 Best-Read books for each Class
  • Various IT Equipment
  • Rub-out Pens and Refills for all Juniors
  • Reading Scheme Books for all Infants
  • School Library Refurbishment
  • Christmas Crackers and Decorations

Can you help us?

The Friends rely on the goodwill and generosity of volunteers, both in terms of donations and time, and we could not achieve what we do without their help.

If you are interested in joining the Friends, as a committee member or helper, we would be overjoyed to hear from you! Please talk to a committee member or email
