Friends of Frank Wise School

The Friends of Frank Wise School is a charitable group with the aim of increasing the provision of specialised resources, facilities and equipment in order to support the work of Frank Wise School. We also raise awareness of the work of the school within the wider community.

Registered charity number 800362.

The aims of the Friends are:
  • To raise funds to provide additional equipment, facilities and amenities for the benefit of the pupils at the school.
  • To promote awareness in the local community of the problems and needs of the pupils at the Frank Wise School.
What we do:

Membership of the Friends is open to all parents of pupils at the school, school staff and any member of the community who wishes to encourage the aims of the Friends of Frank Wise School.

Past fundraising priorities have been a tremendous success and we have recently been able to enhance the Secondary playground with outdoor fitness equipment and support the renovation of the Primary playground with new permanent equipment and all weather surfacing.

We are still aiming to replace the current fleet of aging minibuses, as well as continuing to support off site activities, trips and visits. If you wish to help with our ongoing fund-raising you can do so via our Just Giving page.

Historically, we have been responsible for the purchase of many items of equipment, as well as opportunities for our young people:

  • We provided the school with two minibuses which are used daily.
  • We fully equipped the school’s Post-16 building with the best possible resources.
  • We have raised funds for the school’s artificial grass surface on the senior field to enable year round play and sport for the children.

All this has only been possible because of our dedicated committee members and huge support from both business and the local community.
