The Friends of Staines Prep

The Committee is made up of enthusiastic parents and staff throughout the school who raise funds for us, by organising a range of fun events and activities for the children and their families throughout the year. The Friends rely on parents to volunteer at both the planning stages of any event, as well as on the day itself. Please come along to our coffee mornings to hear about how you can get involved.
