Friends of The Abbey School

The Abbey has an active association of parents, carers, grandparents, school staff and other friends. All members of the school community are automatically members of the Friends association and welcome to attend meetings, as well as events. The association operates in accordance with the written constitution and has a committee of elected members and a board of trustees.

Details of events and meetings will be posted here and communicated via the school newsletter.

Next meeting: Wednesday 26th June 7 p.m. (virtual Zoom meeting - please contact if you would like the link to join the meeting)

The Friends have a programme including 3 major fund-raising and social events throughout the academic year:

  • Annual Grand Draw & Family Bingo Evening - Autumn Term
  • Friends of The Abbey Annual Sponsorship Challenge - "raise £20.24 for 2024" during the spring term. Details are available to download below.
  • Family Fun Day & BBQ - Sunday 30th June 2024

You can contact the Friends via the school office or email 

As well as these opportunities to meet other families, share ideas and support, The Friends also have their own Facebook group exclusively for parents and carers of students at the school.

Additionally, the Friends raise money by holding raffles at school events and encouraging everyone to donate when they shop online by using sites such as The Giving Machine.
