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 digital equipment, team kits for PE, books for many subjects including English, Business Studies, Science and Geography,  and supported Drama, Music and Art.

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 and Justgiving

Latest news

We started the school year off with a bang at our first meeting giving back to the school over £1,800 towards equipment such as cameras, tripods, microscopes, light boxes, dictionary’s, art materials and the new 6th form common room.

This year we hope to carry on our successful fund raising with a little help from you. One of the easiest things you can do is carry out any of your online shopping through the easyfundraising site/app. It costs you nothing but we get a small percentage back from the companies you shop with. Raffle prizes are needed for draws at the big shows, so if you know of any companies that would be willing to donate a prize, or if you could just give a box of chocolates that would be hugely appreciated!

Saying that, just buying a raffle ticket or refreshment at any of our events goes a long way to helping the school. Thank you to everyone who did this last year.

This year we’re hoping to offer refreshments at the Christmas concert, in which the students will be performing Hair Spray the Musical! There will be several other festive stalls there too.  We will also be attending the Sports Awards evening and the summer concert so please come and say hello to the team.

We also arrange the Year 11 prom every year. This is always a huge success and very well attending by the Year 11 students. You can find pictures of the prom using #TJFSProm 2019 on Instagram.

Friends of The John Frost School are a registered charity and every penny raised is spent on children within the school.
