Who are the Friends of Roseacre?

The Friends are an informal group of volunteers who work in partnership with the school to enhance fundraising possibilities. Examples of how the money raised is used are below:

  • make a contribution to the purchase of a leavers hoodie for year 6 pupils.
  • purchase a Christmas gift for every pupil at the academy

When do the Friends meet?

We’d love to welcome you to our meetings, which take place 6 times per school year, usually on a Friday at 3.30pm. The meetings are held in the upstairs classroom and you enter the school though the main reception door on Stonycroft Avenue. If the meeting times are not convenient you can still be involved just email  for more details.
