    The Friends of Woking High School Spring term OGM will take place on Wednesday, 22nd of February at 6:30 pm in the school library.  All parents and carers of Woking High School students are welcome to attend.

    This meeting is a great way to get involved with FOWHS, so even if you only have the time to attend one of the three meetings a year it would be nice to see you. We are looking for people who would be interested in organising or taking part in existing or new fundraising events. Please do get in touch if you can offer your time in this way, or if you have any ideas on how to raise more funds for the Friends and can’t attend the meeting. Email us at FOWHS@wokinghigh.surrey.sch.uk .

     We’d love to see you there!

     

     

  • The Friends recognise that many people are willing to support fundraising efforts but don’t always have the time or interest to attend meetings or help out at events. We have therefore made it really easy for you to support the Friends and have 4 main ways to give.

    GIFT AID

    Gift Aid allows us the Friends to claim 25p from HMRC for every £1 you give. Please update your gift aid details on Scopay under YOUR INFO>GIFT AID

    DONATE WHILE YOU SHOP – AT NO EXTRA COST TO YOU!

    For every penny you spend with your favourite online retailer, a percentage is donated to the Friends.  There’s no additional cost and no hidden catches!  Please click on the link below to find out more and sign up.

  • WHAT A DIFFERENCE WE CAN MAKE!

    Your donations this academic year have enabled us to support funding requests from:

    ·        English Department

    ·        Maths department

    ·        Science Department

    ·        Languages Department

    ·        Drama Department

    ·        SEN Department

    ·        Exam Department

    ·        PE Department

    ·        Food & Nutrition Department

    ·        Music Department

    ·        Facilities

    So, because of your generous donations, the Friends of Woking High School are able to provide all our children with the benefit of a few added extras.

    Please could you convey my heartfelt thanks, and the thanks of the whole Science Department, for accepting our bid to replace the goggles and visors for the whole department after we donated them all to the NHS, so that we can continue to deliver the science curriculum effectively. I am certain our students will also be grateful to be able to participate in hands-on practicals.
    Catharina Nicholls,  Senior Science Technician

     Thank you again for the iPad that you kindly agreed to fund for the Science Department. I have been able to use it this week to take photos of some of the activities that have been happening in the Science department and post these to our Twitter feed (@WokingHighSci). If you would like to take a look on Twitter you'll be able to see what a difference it will make for us to be able to post photos of our activities again and raise the profile of our department and school in the wider community. We have also started to use it to keep a record of our practical work which will be an invaluable resource within the department.

     Mrs L Pollard, Specialist Leader in Education of Science
