Friends of Thornton

Welcome to Friends of Thornton Home Page!

Dear Parents & Friends,


The Friends of Thornton (FOT) is a group of parents/carers and staff who meet regularly and organise events to raise money for the school.

In the past we have raised money to buy outside play equipment, musical instruments, a sand pit, full school kit for sports events, new chairs for the hall, the big screen in the hall and many other items which have been used across the curriculum.


Organising events such at the Summer fayre and Christmas Disco takes a HUGE amount of time and effort and we rely heavily on the goodwill of parents, families of the children, staff and especially on the Friends of Thornton members who start planning these events months in advance. You can also help by donating your time to help, maybe help with a stall at the events.  As a parent, you are automatically a member of the Friends of Thornton. We also rely heavily on donations, of gifts, cakes & time in order to make events a success and something you will want to attend.


I know it must seem that we are constantly asking for donations, but without them we would simply not be able to put on enjoyable events.

So please, think of us when you’re having a pre-Christmas or summer clear out for possible raffle and tombola prizes, also when you are out and about there are some fantastic offers in the shops and

supermarkets at the moment, no gift is too big or too small.


I am happy for you to contact me by email – We’re also on Facebook find us at


Thank you smiley

Parent Volunteers


We know not everyone has the time to support committee activities, however, we would appreciate your help as a volunteer to participate in the events we run.


If you would like to help us, say at the Summer Fair or one of the discos, please contact one of the members above . You would not be required to attend any or all meetings or events, but it would be great if you could pledge your support as and when you can.
