Friends of Warwick School

The Friends of Warwick School ("FOWS") is an association of old boys and parents of boys currently at school. The FOWS play a very important role in providing funds to either support school projects or to enable the boys to purchase items that are outside of the school budget.

Funded Projects
 

During the course of the year, The Friends of Warwick School are asked by various teachers for our help with certain projects. Here are the latest projects that we have helped with:

MUSIC DEPARTMENT

The Music Department received funding for two flugel horns. The school’s three big bands, three jazz combos and the brass band will have use of these.

JUNIOR SCHOOL

The children in the Junior School will be pleased to hear that funds have been approved for a number of games boxes and equipment for break time, along with some storage benches and planters.

DRAMA DEPARTMENT 

The Drama Department have received funding towards a Choreographer for next term's performance of West Side Story.

LIBRARY AND ENGLISH DEPARTMENT

The Library and English Department requested funding to introduce a 'Lads and Dads' reading project. A study by the Literacy Trust identified the involvement of a male role model can make a marked difference in promoting a positive attitude to reading for life.

SPORT

Funds toward a Bola Stand and Trainer have been approved. This equipment will be utilised by both the Senior and Junior School and can also be used for feeding tennis balls.

These are just a few of the fantastic projects that FOWS have raised money for at their events, including the Winter Fair and the FOWS shop.
