Friends Of More House
The Friends of More House (FOMH) is run by volunteers from the parent body.
We organise events to raise money for additional items for the school and also work to facilitate contact between parents and strengthen mutual support within the school community
Annual events include a Christmas Fair, an Easter Egg Tombola for the boys, and a Summer Dinner Dance for parents and the staff. The Friends also provide refreshments at school gatherings such as Sports Day, and lunch after the Christmas & Easter services.
The Friends sell Second Hand Uniform from a unit located directly behind Main House, and which is open on the first Friday of every month from 15.30 to 16.30hrs. Please email More2ndhanduniform@gmail.com with any queries.
Over the last 5 years, almost £60,000 has been raised through the activities of the Friends.
Staff and students from Pupil Voice are able to submit funding requests to the Committee which includes representatives from each year group. The Committee, in consultation with the Headmaster, decides how to allocate available funds with an aim to benefit boys of all interests and ages across the school. In the past this has included over £9,000 in sports equipment, £11,000 for the Drama department, £5,000 for the library, £4,000 in the Engineering department and over £12,000 on a Home Economics classroom.
The Friends maintains and distributes a parent-contact list which can be accessed by year group or by the school as a whole. Inclusion on the list is by an opt-in basis only. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org in order to be included on the list.
Please also sign up to our Facebook page - “Parents of More House”.
Within each school year there are one or two Year Representatives. The respresentatives arrange coffee mornings and social events. They are a fantastic source of knowledge to new and current parents.
Volunteering at the Friends events is a great way to meet other parents and to help raise funds for the boys. Please do sign up, come along and join in! We look forward to meeting you.
