Friends of Almond Hill (FOAH)


We really need your support to keep Friends of Almond Hill going! If you are willing to help organise events for our children to help raise funds for the school, please let the office know! Even if you only have a small amount of time to offer, we would love to hear from you. Over the years, our parents have supported many fun events for the children and FOAH have paid for resources and educational activities which we are not able to provide from our budget. Thank you very much in advance. Any help is always so greatly appreciated.

Friends of Almond Hill are a dedicated group of parents who organise fund raising and fun events for our pupils and parents.

We view all parents and carers as members and welcome support in any way, big or small. FOAH are keen to organise events that reflect the interests of pupils as well as parents and carers!

FOAH meet each half term. Meetings are open to all parents/carers.  FOAH keep you well informed of planned activities through their newsletters and welcome your ideas.

Christmas Events

In the next couple of weeks, we have some lovely events running to raise funds for the school

Guess the number of Christmas chocolates - 50p a guess and the winner gets to take the Chocolate jar home for Xmas. Please bring money into the class (w/c 12th December).

Present room 2022 – Friday 9th December.  Once again, our lovely volunteer elves have been working hard to find some lovely gifts for the children to purchase. Please make payment on School Gateway (by 7th December) for the number of items you would like your child to buy at £2 a gift (cash also accepted on the day) and this year there are also gifts for pets!

Christmas treats - Due to the popularity of the Halloween biscuits, we have an opportunity to purchase Christmas treats. Payment on School Gateway as before (by 9th December). Biscuits £1.50, cake £2.00.

Guess the Christmas word - Each class will be given a Christmas scratch card. Guesses are £2. Children can bring in cash between 1st and 20th December. The lucky winner will receive ½ of the total takings to a maximum of £30 – every little helps at Xmas!

Remember whilst you are Christmas shopping online at Amazon you can support us by selecting us as your chosen charity at Amazon Smile. Once you set it up, we automatically are sent 0.5% of the sales. Search for Amazon Smile to set up your account.

Reminder of ways to help raise funds for FOAH from the comfort of your own home:

Amazon Smile – to help raise funds for the school we have registered Friends of Almond Hill on Amazon Smile. It costs you nothing but once registered, for every purchase you make on Amazon Smile, 0.5% of the value is paid to Friends of Almond Hill. It’s quick and easy to register and a great way to raise funds.

School Lottery – tickets cost just £1 a week. To play, go to:

Textiles Donations – If anyone is having a clear out, remember that you can support the school by bringing your unwanted clothing and shoes to our textile recycling scheme. Just bring the items to the office where they can be put in the box in the hall. FOAH are only paid once the box is full, so get clearing!
