The Friends of The Windsor Boys’ School (Registered Charity Number 1154400)

The Windsor Boys School - Library - 01

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 2015/16 we raised over £31,000, please get involved and support the school.

Our biggest fundraiser is providing the parking for the Windsor Triathlon in June each year.  Our biggest social event is our annual Uno Animo dinner dance.  The date is already fixed for 3rd December 2016 and we hope to see as many parents there as possible.  Last year funds from the dance were used to replace the school’s server.

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 friends@twbs.co.uk 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.

Come along to a Friends meeting - everyone welcome. Meetings are held once a term.

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 friends@twbs.co.uk if you think you have something we can sell or raffle!
