We have a hardworking Friends of Thamesmead School (FoT) group which meets to discuss and co-ordinate supporting the school with various events and fundraising activities. They are an enthusiastic group of parents and local supporters who are keen to raise as much money as possible to help enhance Thamesmead students’ education experience. Parents are always welcome to get involved. The FoT meets either in school or at the Red Lion a couple of times per term.

Roles of the FoT Committee
Typical events supported or run by Friends of Thamesmead:
New Parents Events
Providing and serving a buffet for the GCSE presentation evening in November.
Providing/selling refreshments at the Autumn Concert and the Christmas Carol Concert.
Supporting School plays & productions
The biggest fundraiser of the year: a refreshments stall at the Shepperton Fair in June. This is a very enjoyable day and we need as many volunteers as possible to put a stint in on the stall, throughout the day (setting up, preparing, serving or dismantling) to make the stall a success.
Providing/selling refreshments at the Summer Concerts
