  • basketball equipment, refurbishment of the trampoline
  • the refurbishment of the LRC
  • for the Science department have had a static electricity generator, and a model torso
  • picnic benches for students
  • equipment for the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme
  • stage lighting and portable staging for the Drama department
  • stage curtains and a projector for the main hall
  • and much more

How do I get involved?
The Friends need all sorts of help. Some people join the committee and attend the meetings. Other people prefer to be on the helpers list so they can be called on to assist at the bigger events if they are able to. It is up to you to decide how much time you can give.
