Friends of Sherfield
Friends of Sherfield (FOS) is a dynamic community comprising parents, pupils and staff. The group organises fun social events and raises funds for charities and the school.
FOS events are always well supported. As well as being great fun they help to bring staff, parents, friends, and the local community together socially in support of the school.
We have a regular calendar of events throughout the year that offers something for everyone!
Our Quiz and Curry Night held in February each year is always very popular.
Easter time sees our annual Easter Egg Hunt and Sponsored Walk. Early summer generally heralds the Summer Ball - a wonderful evening of glitz and glamour, including a casino with live music and dancing.
The Christmas Fayre is another big FOS event. It’s hugely successful and brings together not only the school and parents but also the local community.
As well as these large events, we are also involved in smaller ones throughout the year - please see the events calendar for details. We also help out at events organised by the pupils and school such as discos and the Valentines lunchtime sale.
