The Friends

Welcome to THE FRIENDS OF HIGHWORTH

Welcome to the Friends of Highworth.  We are an integral and important part of the school.  As a registered charity (number 307821), we work imaginatively and tirelessly to raise extra funds which enhance students' opportunities, projects and facilities.  As parents/carers of students at the school you are automatically enrolled! 

The Friends have a long tradition of organising and running various social events, everything from student discos and quiz nights to the annual Christmas Craft Fair.  Members of the Friends are always on hand to provide audiences with refreshments at concerts and shows and we support the schools’ induction process as part of the welcome to you and your child.

Recent purchases from Friends’ fundraising efforts include outdoor furniture for the student annexe, rowing machines, lighting and sound desks and annual funding of the school minibus.   We will be announcing details of our next fund-raising appeal shortly.

Being a Friend of Highworth does more than just help to raise vital funds.  Becoming involved can give you the chance to foster and maintain a close relationship with the school; it offers you a rewarding insight into the opportunities and achievements enjoyed by the students and enables you to help shape and enhance your child's journey through the school.

IT TAKES TWO!

The Friends of Highworth have a busy calendar of fundraising events taking place throughout the academic year, for which we always need volunteers who will commit to generously giving their time and energy in support.

By agreeing to donate just two hours of your time twice a year to sell refreshments, help at a disco, run a stall at the craft fair or fold raffle tickets, you can help make our fund-raising dreams come true!  Please find below a list of our forthcoming fundraising events.  Please let us know if you are able to pledge your support to any of these events – email friends@highworth.kent.sch.uk

GETTING MORE INVOLVED

Showing your support as an occasional volunteer is very much appreciated and we thank you for committing to our It Takes Two campaign.  We would of course be delighted if you wished to become more involved in the Friends, perhaps in taking up a more formal role on the committee or simply by attending our regular meetings to share your thoughts and ideas.  Perhaps you have some experience in fundraising or event planning?  Do return the Friends of Highworth Form at the bottom of this page if you would like to join us.  All ideas and suggestions are warmly welcomed!
