Friends of Hawthorns is a member’s organisation established to support the school and pupils with fundraising for equipment and activities.

It has charitable status (1142429) and families, friends and staff who are over 18 and associated with the school are welcome to become members. More importantly, supporting Friends of Hawthorns events will enable the association to continue to support the school and pupil whatever needs are identified.

Calling all fundraisers!

Are you interested in supporting the Friends of Hawthorns charity to raise much needed funds for activities and equipment for all the children of Hawthorns school?
Do you have any creative talents or hobbies that could be used to raise funds within the wider community, e.g., cake bakes, sponsored bike rides?
We are also looking for any local businesses who would be interested in supporting Friends of Hawthorns with charitable donations.  Do you know any business that would be interested in supporting us?
As you will be aware, Hawthorns school community has increased massively, which has meant we have had to create two satellite provisions across Tameside. (EYFS is based at Discovery Academy in Hyde, and part of our social communication pathway is based at Wild Bank Primary School, in Stalybridge)
Due to the school now having three sites, this means more equipment and resources, including additional minibuses are now required to meet the needs of all the children, which all come at a cost!
