The Friends of Queenswood School

(Reg. Charity 1113504)

The FQS comprise of a small committee, made up of parents, teachers, and friends of the school.

All the members of the committee have the school’s best interest at heart, and work tirelessly throughout the year to raise funds which enable Mrs Tanner and her staff to purchase equipment of their choice to further enhance the all round facilities, both educational and pastoral, for children at the school.

We encourage all parents to become involved in our fundraising, and only ask that each family make a minimum donation each year of £10.00. This is requested in the Autumn term.
