Friends of Thornden School

Who are FOTS?

You are!

Every parent or carer with a student at Thornden is automatically a member of Friends of Thornden School (FOTS), Thornden PTA, a charity set up for the benefit of Thornden students and the school community. 

While Thornden is a fantastic school with huge amounts going on in terms of educational and extra-curricular activities, FOTS are there to provide the extras which are not normally covered by school funding but which will enrich the experience of all children attending the school. 

How can I help?

We would be delighted to have your financial support as we try to provide money for the extras. While we do run the occasional event, the PTA’s main method of fundraising is now our Gift Aid Donation Scheme, details of which are below. Signing up for thegivingmachine enables commission from your online spending to track back to Thornden at no extra cost to you.

We have friendly regular meetings which you are always most welcome to attend. FOTS serve refreshments at Parents’ Evenings and sell second hand uniform. If you’d like to help practically then please do get in touch via  or on our Facebook page. Together we can make a big difference!

The FOTS Team 

  • Chair: Polly Gleeson

Plus the fantastic (growing) team 

…and you too? The more the merrier.
