What We Do

    The Friends of The Howard Of Effingham School are instrumental in providing an important link between the school and community.  We provide a forum for a broad spectrum of personalities and skill-sets to unite and enhance the academic and social environment of everyone at the school in a charitable and sociable environment.

    Our children are the future - let's help them get there ...........

    How can I help or get involved?

    There are THREE different ways that you can help your school -

    1  Simply sign up to one of our popular fundraising schemes

    Minibus Prize Draw 

    This is a simple way for you to donate funds to the school and assist in contributing to the costs of running the school minibuses. 

    More details on how it will work next academic year 2019/20, coming shortly.....


    We have recently subscribed to this popular online fundraising initiative which simply allows you to select participating retailers when you make purchases online and The Howard will automatically benefit from a percentage contribution.

    2  Offer your time by getting involved in events and meetings

    Sign Up

    Get involved on an ad hoc basis by helping out at events which simply require a few more hands by signing up on the Sign Up forms which are emailed via the school.

    Join the Committee

    Join the Friends and come to meetings and offer ideas and help on a regular basis.

    3 Join in one of the event teams to help organise an event

    There is no commitment to come to regular committee meetings or even join the committee if this is not your thing.  We have small teams who independently organise our regular events - or maybe you have an idea for a new event you would like to organise.  We are always open to new ideas.
