Friends of St Mary's Leyland

Formed after the fire of 2013 when like-minded parents came together to support the school, hosting social events and fundraising to assist the students, staff and other parents.

How they have supported the school to date:-

Preserving history – encasing the remains of the crucifix

  • Letting the light shine once again on the astro-turf
  • World book day prizes
  • Reward trip refreshments
  • Uniting Year 11 and Year 7 at an ice-breaker event

At the 2017 AGM it was agreed to disband the formal group of the PTFA as most responsibilities fell on just a handful of committed people and instead to form a “Friends events and hospitality group”. This would entail supporting the school at their events by providing refreshments.

Any parent who could spare 30 minutes at any school function would be warmly welcomed, as many hands make light work. Please contact the Secretary Mr John Newsome at johnnewsome@btinterenet.com
