About Us

The Friends of The John Frost School are parents, teachers and friends who help with fundraising as part of the school community.   The PTFA is a registered charity and part of the PTA UK network.

Over the years we have purchased many items and the group has organised the school prom annually since 2005. We have contributed towards school trips to reduce the cost for parents. We have provided equipment for the technology department and team kits for PE, books for English and Science, dictionaries for Geography, theatre make up and masks for Drama, music sheets for Music and folders for Art. We recently supported the poppy art work for Remembrance Day

In order to carry on supporting the school the PTFA would welcome new members. Please contact us if you feel you can help.

You can follow the work of the PTFA on Facebook and Twitter. We are always trying new things and now also welcome donations and payments via Paypal.

Latest news

The Year 11 prom in June was organised by the Friends of the School.  It was a wonderful evening complete with a red carpet, limousines, a DJ and a photo booth. We work closely with the school prom committee to ensure that year 11 students have the best night of their life. All of the photos of the event can be found on our facebook page.

This term we have also supported the Christmas concert and Remembrance day poppy art work and bought books and workbooks for the students.Thank you to everyone who bought refreshments or a raffle ticket this year. This fundraising has meant that we have once again been able to buy books for the school including revision books for business studies and science. We also support Welsh Bacc by attending events and helping out with funding.

For the first time we have been supermarket bag packing with the Headteacher and Mr Gregory with great support from the whole community.   Look out for us again in the new year!  Earlier in 2017, the Friends of the John Frost School held our first Quiz Night. It was a fantastic evening with Welsh themed questions, prizes, entertainment and food which we hope will be an annual event with parents, teachers, colleagues from the local primary school, family and friends taking part in a fantastic community evening.

Friends of The John Frost School are a registered charity and every penny raised is spent on children in the school: in 2017 we sponsored a Welsh Bacc event, purchased revision books for Science and books for Art and Business Studies.  We arranged the prom for Year 11 and sold sponsored bricks in the school new build, we will publish pictures as these are installed in the new year.
