Welcome to Friends of Saxon Hill Academy
The main function of our group is to support the school by raising as much money as we can to enhance, enrich and improve learning experiences for the children. We also provide those ‘little extras’ that make school memorable, such as trips to wildlife parks and our annual Christmas party.

How can you get involved?
The more people that become involved, the more we can achieve and the easier it will be.
Even if you have younger children at home, or only a small amount of time, could you come to a meeting, help set up an event, serve food or design a poster? Perhaps you have a professional skill you could help us with? You don’t have to come into the school; many of our volunteering tasks can be done from home.
