Friends of Silverhill School

At Silverhill School we have a very active and friendly body of parents, the Friends of Silverhill School (FOSS), who play an important role organising social events and raising money. As a parent of the school you are already a member of FOSS, but don’t let it rest there, be an active parent! We are always in need of extra help to run the events. It’s also a great way of getting to know other parents, especially if you are new to the school and local area.

FOSS aim to make a modest profit from their events and revenue generated by the Friends is used to purchase specialist and ‘nice to have’ equipment for the school. The Committee maintains a wish list to which any part of the school can add requests.

FOSS is run by a committee and the positions held for the 2018/19 school year are:

Chairperson Tamson Scott, Baby Unit parent

Secretary Laura Hickling, Year 1 and Nursery parent

Treasurer Claire Searle, Year 1 parent

Together with representatives from across the school, the committee aim to meeting at least once a month during the academic year to organise an active and varied social programme.

FOSS are always looking for new ideas for social events that will bring our parents and children together.

Contact us

FOSS also run the uniform shop which is situated in the main school building. We are open before and after school for parents to come along and purchase uniform.

Selling second hand uniform – we will price and sell your second-hand clothes for you. You get 70% of the sale price for each item sold. The remaining 30% goes toward our fund raising ventures.

If you wish to hand in clothes to be sold, please make sure that clothes are clean, clearly marked with your child’s name and we have your address and contact number so that we can forward any money on to you. We also very gratefully receive donated items of uniform, but due to limited space, we no longer sell non school branded second-hand items such as grey trousers.

Contact us
We would like to encourage parents to put forward any ideas for fund raising or for social events. We welcome your suggestions. May be you have some ideas on other ways we could use the funds. Perhaps you have an area of expertise or a service which you could offer – maybe forming part of an event. Do let us know.

To contact us you can:

  • Visit us in person at the FOSS shop – see opening times above.
  • Leave a note under the FOSS shop door.
