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 Holiday Inn a couple of times per term.
200 Club – Lucky Lotto – Monthly Prize Draw
Friends of Thamesmead also run a 200 Club which has a monthly prize draw and an annual draw in October. Please click below for the application form and details. All parents, friends and family are welcome to join to win monthly prizes and an annual Jackpot Grand Prize.
Annual Financial Report
The most recent AGM report can be found here with details of the funds raised and items purchased for the school. All parents are welcome to attend these meetings that are advertised through the Thamesmead Talk newsletter.
Typical events supported or run by Friends of Thamesmead:
Autumn Fashion Show
Providing and serving a buffet for the GCSE presentation evening in November.
Providing/selling refreshments at the Acoustic Concert and the Christmas Carol Concert.
Organising Leaver’s Hoodies for Year 11
Supporting Songstar & School plays
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.
Family Fun Run – new for 2017
Providing/selling refreshments at the Summer Concerts and School Play.
