Friends of Thorpe St Andrew School

Welcome to the Friends’ Association page on the school website. The Association is made up of parents, staff and school governors.

As school budgets are ever further stretched, we raise money to fund or co-fund a variety of resources and events.  In recent years, we have bought or contributed to the purchase of additional Maths equipment, Lights for the Performing Arts department, equipment for the Gardening Club and the Robotics Club, Design & Technology equipment, and guitars for the Music department.

As we emerge from Covid-times, we looking forward to a possible return of our annual Christmas Fayre and other numerous events, trips and outings such as student paintballing, visits to Thorpe Park, Quiz ‘n’ Chips evenings, and our ever popular Year 6 ‘Moving on Up!’ Party to welcome children to their new school.

Our Committee meets once every half-term informally at the Brewers Fayre (Broadland View – 7pm-9pm) and we are always looking forward to welcoming new members!  If you’d like to join us – or are willing to help out at future events – please do get in touch.
