Who are we? 

We are a registered charity aiming to raise extra funds for our academy, to enhance the education our children receive by providing sought after extras that the regular academy budget wouldn’t allow. 


What do we do? 

From cake sales to themed parties, summer fairs to Christmas celebrations, we are always looking for new ideas, support and members to raise as much as possible for our academy. 


How can I help? 


FOPHIA welcomes anyone who would like to make a difference in our academy. As little or as much of your time you can spare...There are no set expectations. Whether it's putting in the work behind the scenes of an event or turning up on the day to help set up, every little helps!

Being a part of our committee will allow you to make a connection between the academy and home life and enable you, as parents, to become more positively engaged in your children's education. Your ideas and involvement could help improve the education of all the children at our academy.

What have FOPHIA achieved so far? 


Every penny raised so far has been put to fantastic use! From the small things like classroom craft essentials, to the big things like the pirate ship in the early years playground. This year we hope to raise funds for Year 1 & Year 2 playground enrichment.  

We look forward to seeing you at future meetings and events. Thank for your continued support,
