Friends Group


The Friends of Thomas Wolsey School is a group of parents, ex-parents and other supporters. We work together to support the school through activities, events and fundraising, and communication.

As the Thomas Wolsey School PTA, we aim to create good communication and relationships between the school and parents and help parents be more involved in their children’s education.

One of our main activities is fundraising. Friends Group funding purchased the new minibus and pays for its maintenance, and contributed to large projects such as George’s Garden. As well as these large items, we can fund the extra things that make such a difference to the children but are increasingly hard to fund from the school budget, such as leavers gifts and Christmas Parties.

Joining the Friends Group is a great way to get more involved in the school as a parent, but it isn’t just for parents. If you are looking for an interesting and challenging way to volunteer, then joining the group as a core member could be for you!
