Friends of Wychwood
All parents of current pupils are encouraged to join Friends of Wychwood (FoW). This group supports the school by helping at events such as Open Morning, the University Fair and the Careers Fair, and they also run events for and on behalf of the parent body. They raise money for desirable items and equipment to benefit their daughters such as animation software and sports equipment.
The committee meets three times a year in an informal manner but achieves great things such as the Christmas Fair and annual Welcome to Wychwood drinks evening. FoW are an excellent way to contact other parents and to become part of the school community.
For further information please contact Kate Lagden.
What is Friends of Wychwood?
Friends of Wychwood (FoW) is Wychwood School’s Parent Association. It was established in 1999 to provide fund-raising and social events for the whole school community. Monies raised allow the purchase of items that may not otherwise be possible. FoW is run by a Committee of parents and teachers.
New members are always welcome; please do get in touch with the FoW secretary if you would like further information. FoW meets once or twice per term, usually at 7.30pm in the music room. We generally organise three events per year, including the Christmas Fair with both outside stallholders and form stalls, and a spring or summer social event for parents, staff, Board members and girls. We are always looking for new fund-raising ideas and for parents able to help at events on an occasional basis.
