Friends & Parents of Hormead School

The Friends and Parents of Hormead School (FPHS) are a group of volunteers who help support their school in a multitude of ways. We work to help create a vibrant community of pupils, parents, staff and friends. Through our work, the school is able to offer so much more for the children who attend.

We have a core group of the Friends who meet to generate ideas, discuss arrangements for upcoming events and help run fundraising activities. We only have meetings when we need them, but are always looking for fresh ideas. If you are interested do let us know - use the contact page to get in touch through the school office.


Helpers and volunteers are parents or friends who can help set up events, provide resources or materials or have a particular skill that would benefit the children of our school. They also help out with projects around the school, sorting, painting, fixing, clearing etc. You don’t have to have a child at the school to support us, or you could be a grandparent of a child in school. Help is asked for as and when we need it, so do let us know if you’re willing to help - use the contact page or ring the school office on 01763 289201.

Other ways to help

In addition to fundraising, The Friends also provide a valued link to the community. Many support the school by listening to pupils read, run after school clubs, assisting with swimming and helping out on school trips.

The Friends provide a much needed boost to the fun side of our community, running quiz nights, race nights, disco’s or grand balls and our annual “Firework Spectacular”.
