Friends of Saxmundham Free School
What we do:
As with all PTAs, our aim is to raise funds to provide ‘extras’ for the students. Recent examples of donations would be Transport to the Leavers Ball, Grant towards Tom’s Memorial Garden and the school’s stage lighting.
Our other role is to support the school at functions, Open Evenings etc., which normally involves tea trolley duties and catering!

A big thank you to all that have participated in the 100 draw for 2018.
But the committee have taken the decision not to do the draw again for 2019 due to lack of support.
The Friends have made a donation of £295.75 to the Eco Council which we were able to do with the kind support of a successful funding application from EDF Energy.
