Henry’s Friends

Henry's Friends is a charitable organisation, established soon after the school opened in 2004.

Our objectives are to raise funds in support of the education of the children of Henry Chichele Primary School. We do this by arranging events which are open to the public.

Henry's Friends are grateful for your support with the extra things we do in our school! Last academic year we raised a little over £7500! Our events ranged from a Colour Run; Summer Fayre; Christmas Jumper sales and Wreath Making to supporting the Santa Round Table walk and more besides.

If you would like further information on joining Henry's Friends, or be part of our volunteer WhatsApp group, please speak to a member of the Committee   or email henryspta@outlook.com 

Henry’s Friends is a dedicated team of parents and school staff who work together to raise funds for our school. The money we raise is spent in different ways but our priority is always to enhance the educational and recreational facilities for our children.

We do this by organising fun and inclusive events throughout the school year, to bring our school and community together and to celebrate what a fantastic school we have.

We have a core committee who plan and organise our events, but we always welcome additional support and help from parents. If you would like to assist on any upcoming events, please don’t hesitate to contact the school office or any of the committee members for more information.

As a committee, we meet once a term and these meetings are open to all parents who would like to come along and see what we are about. We very much value your support.

We advertise all our events in the weekly school newsletter; the school facebook page and our own newly launched account https://www.facebook.com/groups/799204011155105/.
