The Friends of Finmere School Association (FOFSA) significantly add to the social and community life of the school by organising a variety of exciting fundraising and social events. FOFSA tries to provide something for everyone and the events organised, such as the Quiz Night, Spring Fete, Christmas Bazaar and our fantastic Fireworks Spectacular, are all well attended and enjoyed by friends and family of pupils and the local community alike.
All funds from the events go back to the school to support school projects. FOFSA has helped the school to purchased books and equipment to enrich the school life of pupils. Paid for an artist in residence, a tipi for the school grounds to provide an exciting outdoor learning classroom and has also organised and paid for a Christmas Party, end of year Leavers Party and a trip to Sea Life in London.
All parents automatically become members of FOFSA when their children join the school. It’s a great way for new parents to make friends with other parents and get involved with school life. FOSFA events also help to build firm relationships between the wider community and the school.

Easyfundraising for Finmere School
“Friends of Finmere School Association” are registered with Easy Fundraising and if you would like to help raise funds for the school then please follow the instructions below.
How it works - easyfundraising is the simplest way to raise funds for your good cause. You shop online with your favourite stores and you raise money at the same time. It's that easy. We work with thousands of well known retailer including Boden, M&S, Argos, Vodafone and many more. Our retailers love supporting good causes and will donate a percentage of your spend to your cause when you shop with them through the easyfundraising site. For example, spend £50 with Boden and you'll raise £1.25. Insure your car with the RAC and they'll donate up to £30 to your cause. Take out a new mobile contract with Vodafone and raise up to £45.00...we could go on!
And with our Find & Remind tool, we'll even tell you when you start to shop with an easyfundraising retailer, no matter where you are on the web. Which means your cause will never miss out on a donation from our retailers. Sounds good? Then register today - it's as easy as 1,2,3
2. When you've registered, you're ready to shop and raise money!
Simply click on the retailer you want, then shop as you would normally.
When you make a purchase, we'll send you an email telling you how much you've raised and pass the donation to your cause.
3. That's it! We tried to think of step 3, but we couldn't - it's just that easy.
