Friends of Welcombe Hills School (FOWHS)




FOWHS (Friends of Welcombe Hills School)


The FOWHS team are: Sarah Oldrey & Ren Harris.

We both have children in the school and understand how precious time is - but FOWHS needs your help and support!


What do FOWHS fund?

  • FOWHS currently donate at least £5,000 a year to WHASPS. If we don’t make this contribution every year WHASPS would need to charge more. The cost to run WHASPS is currently between £10,000-£12,000.
  • We give every child a Christmas experience every year. This cost was £1800 last year.
  • We have helped fund enhanced learning activities for a number of our children (i.e. Bamboozle)
  • We have helped fund workshops for a number of parents/carers (i.e sensory workshop)
  • We are also trying to help raise funds for the new secondary playground, which will be done in phases. Phase 1 =£52,785       Phase 2 =£25,785.     Phase 3=£28,200.
