Friends of Rookwood


Friends of Rookwood School (FORS) is a committee comprising parents and teachers. Our aim is to act as a social catalyst within the school and also combine that with raising funds for ‘extras’. Not everything organised by the Friends aims to raise money, we also arrange fun social events for both pupils and parents.

Over the years FORS has arranged the following events:

  • Fireworks Night
  • Quiz night
  • Junior Discos
  • Drinks at School Plays & Music evenings
  • Parents Tea on the lawn
  • Phil the bag

These events have raised funds to allow FORS to provide the following items:

  • Play equipment in Rookery & the Nursery
  • Pirate Ship for Lower School
  • iPads across the school
  • Cameras for both staff and pupils
  • Apple TVs across the school
  • Picnic benches
  • Senior School Team Sports kit
  • Lower School Team Sports kit
  • TV for Boarders
  • Library furniture
  • PA system for the Music department
  • New facilities in the Main Hall
