Friends of Rye Hills











About us

The Friends of Rye Hills began in 2011 and is an organisation with the purpose of supporting the work of the school and providing funding to areas of the school where the normal budget might not reach.

Membership is open to anyone with a connection to the school and currently includes members of teaching and support staff, parents, carers, former students, governors, former colleagues and members of the local community.
The Friends Association organises social and fundraising events throughout the year and also operates a ‘100 Club’ with monthly cash prizes.

Applications for funding are accepted by the Friends each year from school departments. This can be for a project, a piece of equipment, a visit etc... the only criteria are that the funds must be used to benefit members of the school community.

Past funding went towards the following:

  • All rides at the school summer fair
  • Video cameras for the Drama Department
  • Digital SLR Cameras for the Art Department
  • Minecraft Licences for the ICT Department
  • GCSE Art Exhibition
  • 3D Printer for DT
  • Book Return Box for the Library
  • Sports Kits for the PE Department
  • Printing Press for the Art Department
  • Defibrillator for SENDCo
  • Air Hockey Table for Youth Group
  • Chairs for the Library

Our past fund raising events have included:

  • Summer Fair
  • Christmas Fair
  • Craft Fairs
