Friends of The Holt School

The Friends of The Holt School is a registered charity (number 1013765). The purpose of the Friends of The Holt School is to raise funds which are donated to the Holt School to help provide additional facilities for students. Examples include: the fitting out of new technology classrooms; provision of new dining hall furnishings and canteen equipment; additional IT equipment and new classroom facilities; a significant contribution to the building of a new humanities teaching block.

The Friends of The Holt School also organise events throughout the year for example student discos, quiz night, auction, colour run and Christmas fair. The money raised from these events is donated to various departments to buy items that they cannot fund. Volunteers are needed for these events to ensure that they continue to be as successful as they have been in the past.
