Welcome to Friends of Woodhouse Grove, the Parents’ Association of Woodhouse Grove School!

“As its name suggests, Friends of Woodhouse Grove is all about getting to know other parents and having fun at the various events we hold throughout the year. In the process we raise a great deal of money for groups and activities across the school – from sports clubs through to music groups plus our annual Leavers’ Awards.

What we do with the money

The money we raise goes directly to help your children by supporting a wide range of extra-curricular groups and activities.

Woodhouse Grove is famous for its fantastic range of groups and activities held outside normal school hours. But of course these cost money. The money we raise goes directly towards these vital activities which enhance your children’s experience of The Grove. This is why we’re so keen to encourage parents to support our fund-raising events – and in the meantime have a fabulous time!
