We are called the Friends of Thornton, or FOT for short! We are a small, fun, friendly group of Parents, Grandparents and Godparents who work tirelessly in our fundraising efforts for the girls benefit to enhance their experience at Thornton College.
The FOT committee organise many social events for parents and girls throughout the school year, such as the Thornton Summer Fête & Fun Dog show, Christmas Market, Anniversary Firework Night, Quiz Night, Celebration Tea and School Discos to name a few! These much loved events raise significant sums of money each year!
We also run Nearly New, the pre-loved uniform shop! We buy unwanted uniform and sell at inexpensive prices. If you would like to arrange a time to visit the Nearly New Shop for your daughter’s uniform please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The money raised from our events goes towards purchasing those fabulous, non-curricular extras to make the girls’ (and parents’!) time at Thornton as enriching as possible.
FOT meetings take place at Thornton three times each term. New parents are always welcome! All our meetings are at school. If you would like to come along, please contact us at email@example.com.
The FOT organise a number of events throughout the school year, the most famous of which is the Thornton Fete and Dog Show. The fete is held in June each year and is one of the largest and finest traditional country fetes in the country. Thousands of visitors join us every year for a marvellous family day out.
Sadly due to Covid we have been unable to host our usual annual events this year due to social distancing and lockdown restrictions. However, we are very much looking forward to the next academic year and we are planning for our first event to be the Annual Firework Celebrations in October 2021.
Please note: Further events will be added to our calendar when dates are confirmed.
