Friends Of More House
The Friends of More House (FOMH) was founded in 2011. It is run by parent volunteers with the purpose of raising funds for supplementary items for the school and to enable parents to meet one another and to be involved in the school community.
Each year staff and the student's council produce a funding request wish list. The Friends committee decides what they would like to support with the aim of benefitting the majority of boys in the school.
Over the last 5 years, almost £60,000 has been raised through the activities of the Friends. This money has been used to purchase, amongst other things, over £9,000 in sports equipment, £11,000 for the drama department, £4,000 for the library, £4,000 in the engineering department and between £12,000 - £15,000 on a home economics area.
The Friends also:
Liaise with class reps
Organise social events
Sell 2nd hand uniform (via email)
Organise annual events (eg. Christmas Fair, Easter Egg tombola, Summer Dinner Dance, Christmas Gift Market)
Organise refreshments at school events

Volunteering is a great way to meet other parents and to help raise funds so please sign-up for the next event – details will be on noticeboards and the "Parents of More House" Facebook page.
