Friends of Gibside School







Welcome to FOGS (Friends of Gibside School), the school PTA (Parent and Teacher Association).

We are a voluntary group who meet once a month to support raising funds for the school. Over the last few years we have continued to raise over £10,000 which has helped fund specialised equipment, resources and other activities/experiences that help our children achieve their very best.

We are a registered charity (charity number 1147045) which enables us to access even more funding and grants and which has added to the ways we can help the school.

We are constantly looking for new ideas as a way of raising funds for the school. Past events and ideas include; School fairs, Bag packs, Abseil, Zipwire’s, Skydiving and annual Great North Run places.

We are always looking for new members. If you are interested in coming along then please do – whether to listen or to help with ideas, we always believe the more the merrier.

We meet on the last Friday of each month at 10:00 am at our Whickham site for no more than an hour. Our meetings are relaxed and always involve a cup of tea and biscuits!!!
