WHO ARE FOSS?
The Friends of Sandon School (FOSS) are an enthusiastic committee of parents who raise funds for the school near Chelmsford in Essex. In recent years FOSS has funded all sorts of ‘extras’ for the school from sixth form study booths, outdoor heaters and seating to a defibrillator. Each year we pay for the much-talked about Year 11 Leavers’ Breakfast and for the last two years we have paid for the Year 13 one too.
This year, our total donations were £5,000 and included £1500 towards much needed new PE equipment and £1500 for new musical instruments.
We support school events wherever we can, and also run our own events such as quiz nights, to help raise valuable funds for the school.

At the end of this school year, three members of the FOSS team will be stepping down. This will leave us with a much smaller team than we would like. We are proud of the money we have raised pay for all sorts of things benefiting all the children in the school. It is also fantastic to have a team providing refreshments at events and parents evenings - something many High Schools don't have.
It would be so sad to see FOSS having to fold but this is a very real possibility.
So, we are looking for new members. Could you help out with serving refreshments or bake a few cakes? Maybe, you'd like to be more involved by taking on a role on the committee. It really is very different to running a Primary School PTA and nothing like as time consuming.
If you are interested in helping, please contact

We would love to hear from you.

Calling all mums, dads and carers. Do you have any uniform going spare please? We are always in need of the current style uniform for our 2nd hand shop.
If you are able to donate any we'd be very grateful - the polo shirts need to have the navy blue logo and blazers should have the embroidered white logo. We would also be grateful for any new style PE kit. Please just hand any GOOD AS NEW uniform into reception marked for FOSS
To contact us about purchasing second hand uniform, please text Colette on 07977474261.
