Friends of Twickenham School

Friends of Twickenham School are instrumental in raising vital funds for the school and do this by organising many worthwhile events throughout the year. However, the fundraising can only be achieved with the active involvement and participation of parents, staff and friends. We are always looking for more help and so we invite you - parents, carers, guardians and staff - to join us in whatever capacity you can. No offers of help will be turned down and we actively welcome all ideas and suggestions.

Twickenham Rugby Parking

We would love it if any visiting rugby fans park with us!  For the Autumn Internationals, we are taking only pre-booked cars.  Please book your space here:  https://diamondcarparks.co.uk/twickenham/

 

EVENTS

The Friends of TS have been operating successfully now for six years and we have already gained a reputation in the local community for holding great annual events and staging other initiatives, including: 

Comedy Night

Rock and Roll Bingo

Quiz Night

Christmas tree sale 

Rugby car parking

Stalls at Whitton’s Christmas and St George’s fairs

GCSE Art Exhibition hosted by a local business in Whitton

 

RAISING FUNDS

In a normal year, we have raised over £6000, all of which gets reinvested into the school by buying a huge range of items: in previous years, we have bought GCSE curriculum and exam equipment, resources for enrichment clubs, sports kit and table tennis tables. Most recently we have contributed substantially towards textbooks and science equipment. Literally, every penny counts.

TWICKENHAM STADIUM RUGBY / EVENT PARKING

We are able to offer secure gated parking for up to 80 cars, MPVs and Coaches within the school grounds for rugby matches and events held at Twickenham Stadium. This is a massive opportunity for us to raise more funds for the school and is operated by an army of parent volunteers so we always need your help!

HOSPITALITY

As well as raising funds, we try to provide some refreshments at parents’ evenings and other events hosted in and by the school. Feedback tells us that this makes families and other visitors feel welcome.

MEETINGS

There is a Friends meeting at least once a term, clearly advertised via school email and the Parents of Twickenham School Facebook group (see below). Meetings aren’t essential to attend, but they do give opportunity to discuss how to allocate funds and plan future events. Everyone is welcome to attend: meetings only last an hour and are always early evening to allow working parents to come. We are a very friendly group and a great mix of families with students ranging from Year 7 to Year 11.

WE NEED YOU!

It is paramount that the Friends of TS continue to grow a stronger team each year to keep events running and to maintain our support for the school. Please get involved, offering as much or as little time as you can. Attendance at meetings is helpful but not essential. We promise you that any volunteering you do will be an effective and positive way of helping you feel more integrated into Twickenham School.

‘PARENTS OF TWICKENHAM SCHOOL’ FACEBOOK GROUP

Please join our closed Facebook page, ‘Parents of Twickenham School’ – it’s a great platform for communicating information, asking questions and celebrating our children; it will also help you connect with other families and make you feel included in the life of the school.

Should you have any questions and ideas, or just want to come on board and help out, please don’t hesitate to contact us; we would love to hear from you!
