Friends of Anstey (Parents' Association)


We have an especially dedicated parents’ group, The Friends of Anstey School, who have raised many thousands of pounds towards extra facilities for our school. There are usually 3 main fund-raising events which they organise:-


- Summer fair

- Fairy and Fantastical Creatures Festival

- Christmas fair

The events are a lot of fun for everyone involved as well as raising funds to provide additional resources and special opportunities for the children. The money raised by this dedicated group of parents, friends and family has paid, amongst other things, for:-

  • our annual summer trip (Knebworth, Shuttleworth, Celtic Harmony Camp and Bewilderwood are particular favourites)

  • the Christmas Pantomime

  • our fantastic, huge wooden, ‘trim trail’ play equipment

  • the Reading Cloud library system

  • our school mud kitchen

  • large wooden Early Years construction blocks

All this would not be possible without the help of the members of the Friends, the school staff, parents and wider community who give us their support. THANK YOU TO EVERYONE INVOLVED.


The Friends hold their AGM in September and everyone is welcome to join the committee as either a member or a helper.
