Welcome! The Friends of Manor House School are a committee of parents and staff who organise social events and fundraising activities throughout the school year. We are a registered charity and have successfully raised funds for Manor House School and charities within our local community.
If you would like to get involved with FOMHS, we would be delighted to hear from you. We are always on the look out for enthusiastic and supportive Friends (with a good sense of humour!).
Our events help us to raise funds for developments, equipment or other items required by girls attending Manor House School. Just a few of the most recent items that the FOMHS have funded are:
- A giant Teepee for our Forest School.
- An outdoor giant chess set for the playground.
- Two microscopes for the Science Department.
- A sewing machine for the Art Department.
- Two digital cameras for our Art and Photography Club.
In addition, we also provide donations towards end of year parties, school trips and the Year 11 Prom night. Within each year group there are one (sometimes two) Friends’ Coordinators. A list of who they are can be found attached to this web page. The Friends’ Coordinators provide a link between parents and the Committee. You will get to hear about all the social events being organised, and there will always be a coffee morning in the diary!
Friends of Manor House Birthday Book Scheme
The scheme encourages a donation of a book from parents to the library to celebrate their daughter’s birthday. Mrs Marriott the Librarian is delighted with the response and support she has received from the ‘Friends of Manor House’ where the idea originally came from. Every donated book has a special book plate in it with the child’s name and form and is put onto display. The books are then made available for others to borrow and read. The promotion of reading is so important and this scheme has shown that all types of books still have great appeal. Although the scheme is optional, it is hoped that a steady flow of books will continue to arrive in the Library!
With very best wishes,
Carla, Jacquie and Marcella, Co-Chairs 2016/17
