Friends of The School

Welcome to our Friends of Thurston Academy (FOTS) page


We are a group of parents who organise and run many fun events throughout the year to raise extra funds to enrich our children's education and time spent at Thurston Primary Academy. We are always looking for "friends of friends" to help out whether that is by baking cakes or helping out at events etc.


If you feel that you could help in any way or you would like to join our friendly committee then please contact Hannah Deacon.

Here is a sample of the fundraising events organised by FOTS in the 2018/19 academic year:

Christmas Fayre

Valentines Disco

Easter Bonanza 

Our Christmas Fair

We had lots of fun today- thanks for coming and a special thanks to the

teachers and children who helped and a massive thanks to the FOTS who made it so special this year.
