Friends of Ambleside Primary School

Who are We?

Welcome to our webpage - did you know that you are automatically a member of our assosiation as soon as your child is enrolled in Ambleside school?  The Friends of Ambleside School  are parents, staff and supporters of the school who get together to help raise money to support the excellent work done by the school. We also organise social/non moneymaking events which strengthen the community of the school. We usually meet at school (your children are welcome to come along and play while we have the meeting).


We know that many of you are very busy but if you can spare any time to come along to our meetings. All are welcome and it's a great way to help school, meet other parents ..and have fun too!! If meetings aren't your cup of tea, you can still be a great help by joining us at events, or perhaps helping serve tea and coffee at parents evenings...your involvement is really valued.

We already have 34 registered supporters who have raised £1,568  simply by shopping this way...and best of all it doesn't cost you a penny.
