The Friends of The Windsor Boys’ School (Registered Charity Number 1154400)
Welcome to The Friends of The Windsor Boys’ School.
The school is fortunate to have an active group of parents who fundraise for the school and hold events to build the school community. In recent years these funds have paid for a new server, 3D printers, costume hire for drama productions, library software, photography equipment, new hall chairs, support for sports…..without the Friends the school (and the boys) would go without these things.
During 2016/7 we raised over £43,000, so please do get involved and help us continue to support the school.
Our biggest fundraiser is organising the parking for the Windsor Triathlon held in June each year.
Our biggest social event is our annual “Uno Animo” Dinner Dance in the run up to Christmas. The date is already fixed for 2nd December 2017 and we hope to see as many parents there as possible. Last year funds from the dance were used to provide extra computers and other facilities for the new Maths block.
We also organise a range of activities throughout the year including new parent Welcome Evenings, Curry Nights and tidy up days at the school.

How Can You Help?
The more people that can help in some way great or small the more our children will benefit. Budgets are constantly being squeezed and the school relies on the activities of The Friends to fund the extras that make the difference to school life.
Keep in touch – email us firstname.lastname@example.org and we will add you to our email helpers list and send you an invite to our Friends Facebook group.
We regularly email and post opportunities to help out at events, it’s a great way to meet other parents and help out when it suits you.
Do come along to a Friends meeting - everyone welcome. Meetings are held once a term.
You can donate your skill or business! We need raffle prizes and auction items throughout the year but particularly for our December Uno Animo dinner.
Please contact email@example.com if you think you have something we can sell or raffle!
You can raise funds for the Friends while doing your online shopping - register with easyfundraising.org.uk and use their links to over 2,700 online retailers and businesses who then pay a cash donation to the Friends when you shop or book a holiday or flight, or order flowers, or renew your insurance etc.
