Friends of Stockham

The Friends of Stockham is an active group of parents and teachers who volunteer their time and energy to enrich the school experience for the children through various fundraising events, activities and initiatives. All the money raised is used to benefit all the children of Stockham School.
The Halloween disco has been a firm favourite with the children for many years. More recently, the children have enjoyed a Valentine disco too.
The summer disco & BBQ have proved extremely popular; children & parents alike have a brilliant time. We have been lucky with the weather for the last few years and we hope that Mother Nature will be kind to us again this year!
We get very festive at Christmas time. Everyone is keen to win one of our gorgeous luxury hampers in the annual draw. The children also love making their own design greeting cards.

The biennial Christmas fair is a lot of fun with plenty of games, treats and prizes. Mr Burbank got several pies in the face!

Other annual activities on offer are making gifts for Mother’s day and Father’s day which the children enjoy enormously. They are always so excited to take home something they have made for Mum or Dad.

We have run collections of all sorts of things from coppers to clothes in order to raise more money for the children.

Games night, bingo and movie night are some of the other events in recent years. Do you know your Mr Potato Head from your Mr Stink? How tall can you make your marshmallow and spaghetti structure and, more importantly, will it hold?

Having enjoyed ourselves raising all this extra funding, we then get to spend it enjoying ourselves too. So where has the money been spent recently….

The Friends of Stockham pay for the coaches to take all the children to the Christmas pantomime – “Oh yes they do!”

On sports day, it’s Friends of Stockham who makes sure the children get their medal and iced treat after all their hard work.

The refurbishment of the library, upgrade of the playground equipment and experiences inside the explorer dome were all made possible due to the additional contributions from Friends of Stockham.


By our very nature, our members move on as their children leave school so we are ALWAYS on the lookout for new members.

If you are interested in joining the committee or helping at some of our events, or if you would just like to know more about us, please contact us via our email address: or talk to one of our members.
