Friends of William de Ferrers School

Dear Parents

The 'Friends' of the William de Ferrers School is an extended form of the Parent Teacher Association and supports the work of the School in a range of areas, with the aim of benefiting the pupils.  In the past the Friends have been able to purchase equipment for a variety of Departments and believe that a strong and well supported Friends’ of William de Ferrers School is an essential part of the School’s future.

Over the last few years we have been able to contribute further to update equipment in the science department, purchase musical instruments for the music department and purchase dresses for our netball team to name but a few.  We also regularly make a donation to the annual Insight into Management Course for our sixth form students’ which enables the cost per student to be reduced.

The Friends' would therefore like to ask each family with one or more children attending the school to make a voluntary donation of £20 per family. However, a donation of any amount is very much appreciated, no matter how large or small. Some families may already have made a donation this year for which we are extremely grateful. If you are able to make a donation this can now be made via ParentPay. We very much hope you will be able to help us to support your children.

For information the elected officers are:

Chairperson - Brenda Haffner 

Vice Chairman - Kevin Page

Treasurer/Secretary - Susan Wakeling 

Please direct any correspondence or enquires to Susan Wakeling at swakeling@wdf.school in the first instance.
