Hello, from the Friends of Chrishall School (FOCS)


We are a registered charity, and our aim is to bring together parents, children, teachers and the local community in family-focused events and fun educational activities. 

Our mission is to raise funds to enhance the learning environment for the children who study, learn and play at the school. 

We run regular fundraising activities which help to buy vital learning equipment like iPads, smartboards, and to create things like imaginative reading corners for the children to read and learn in. We also raise funds for special experiences for the children to enjoy, such as iSingPop.

  • Who are we?
