FOGS - Friends of Gisburn School, is an extremely successful committee, which provides fun activities, opportunities and equipment for all the children at Gisburn School; a termly extra curricular activity day for the whole school (dance workshops, author visit, science workshops,  music workshops)  &  team sports wear, play equipment, science equipment etc. We would like to encourage all parents to attend any of the meetings, which are  very sociable and a great way of getting to know other parents.

If there is anything you would like to know about FOGS or questions you would like to ask, please do not hesitate to contact the school.

Our Next Challenge!

As our school gets bigger, space is at a premium. Expanding the current school building is not an option and that’s where we come in. School have asked us to fund raise towards buying a wooden outdoor classroom to be used by all the pupils. We are currently obtaining quotes and looking at the various options. At a rough estimate we will need to raise £12,000! A huge amount of money!!!! FOGs feel that it can be done with the support of parents & teachers...

Here's what we have done to raise funds so far...

  • 'Quiz, Cheese, Wine and Auction Night' in the school hall.
  • Annual Christmas Fair 
  • 'Bags 2 School' collection of unwanted clothing/bedding etc. 
  • Gisburn School Eco Bags for Life sales 
  • 'Secret Christmas Gift Room'  where the children buy a surprise gift for their special grown-ups!
  •  Easter Egg hunt with drinks, cakes, a raffle, lucky dip, tombola, hook a duck and crafts! 
  • Spring & Summer Fashion Show in the school hall. 
  • Annual Summer Fair.
  • A post Sports Day BBQ to help raise funds for school.
  • A 'Gisburn School of Witches & Wizardary' end of term disco

Coming up this Autumn term will be ...

  • A Christmas Shopping Experience Evening - in school Tuesday 28th November 6pm-9pm.
  • Annual Christmas Fair & Raffle - Friday 1st December
  • Secret Gift Room - Thursday 21st December
