Friends of Trafalgar School (FTS)

The 'Friends of Trafalgar School' (FTS) is made up of a group of parents who donate their time to organise and run fundraising events throughout the year. The monies raised help support the school and pay for the 'extras', ensuring that the present – and future - children get the best possible start in their education.

 Each year, the FTS organise and run various fun events for both children and parents, including: the Christmas Market, an Easter Hunt; the Summer fete; various cake sales; a regular Nearly New Uniform Sale and so much more!  

 All the money raised go towards the on-going fund raising, which, at the moment, is primarily for new playground furniture (a new wooden trim trail, the fencing round the ball area and a new ship).

 Thanks to the huge support of parents who continue to donate and attend these fund-raising events, the monies raised have been used to purchase the following:

  • The annual Christmas pantomime and Christmas crackers
  • Three interactive whiteboards
  • New computers and digital cameras for each of the classrooms
  • Six laptops used for the very popular laptop bus which moves between the classrooms
  • The wooden fun theatre
  • Playground markings
  • Benches and bike/scooter shelter
  • Books for the library

The FTS is extremely grateful to all parents who support them, either by donating gifts and prizes, helping to run the events or simply taking part on the day.
