Friends of Thorndon School (FOTS)

The Friends of Thorndon School are an active group of parents and members of the community who support the school in a variety of ways.

The Friends raise funds for the school by hosting annual events such as the Summer and Christmas Fayres, which are hugely successful and enjoyable and which involve the whole community.  

We make donations towards school trips and outings for all children at the school, together with the annual Christmas Party and the Year 6 end of year trip and leaver's hoodies.  In addition we make donations to the school towards the purchase of iPads, IT equipment and other items that will benefit the children.

Many of the Friends help around the school in a variety of ways; preparing the Church for Assemblies, accompanying school trips and listening to children read to name but a few.

The Friends are always looking for new helpers, either to join the committee or maybe just to help out at major events.

The role of Chair is held by Tanya Hutson, Secretary is Tor Calvert and Treasurer is TBC.

You can contact the FOTS via the school office, their Facebook group: Friends of Thorndon Primary School, Suffolk or their email:

We raised an amazing £6,468 for the school and the pupils. Thank you so much for your support and kind generosity!
