Friends of Trowell School (FOTS)

FOTS LogoWelcome to the Friends of Trowell School section of our website.


We are a group of parents, grandparents and carers that are raising funds to support Trowell CofE Primary School. In the past we have used this money to buy books and musical instruments for pupils to use in school, Year 6 leaver packs and selection boxes for all the children at Christmas. We are always looking for new ways to raise money, get the school community involved and hopefully have some fun while doing it!


Regular events include:

 Movie Nights

Summer Fair

                             Christmas Disco                             

Pamper Evenings

Christmas Fair


We also serve all the refreshments at assemblies, school plays and sports day.

Latest News


Fashion Show in collaboration with Trowell Guides and Scouts👚👗

On Saturday 20th May we all struted our stuff, poured lots of drinks (alcholic and non!) and spent lots of money on the fabulous clothes from Risley Fashion House. We raised an amazing £497.31 on the night giving each group £248.65. Thank you to 1st Trowell guides and scouts for working with us on this. A great night was had by all.


KS2 Movie Night

A huge thank you to everyone who attended the KS2 Movie Night on the 12th May.  We have raised an amazing £101.79p. We hope you all enjoyed the film.


Table Top Sale

Thank you to everyone who came along and supported our event either by having a table or coming along. The breakfast rolls went down very well and we sold out before the end! The total raised was £220.23p


Clamber Stack

While everybody was enjoying the Febuary half term, the installers were busy building and securing our new clamber stack in the playground. The children all seemed very excited to see this new piece of equipment! There is now a rota so all the classes get a safe play on the new clamber stack each week. Please note that children (including younger and older siblings) should not use the equipment before or after school, thank you for your cooperation on this matter.






The cost of the clamber stack is £10,000 pounds, we have already raised £5000 and the school have kindly donated £2000. So please please please help us to raise the extra £3000 to make our target. The children will really enjoy this new piece of play equipment during playtimes. 


So far this year, to the end of June, we are at £970.67! Next we have the summer fair so make sure you keep an eye on our totaliser to see how we are getting on no
