Meet the Friends

The Friends of Wolverhampton Grammar School is our parent teacher association. The Friends meet once or twice a term and organise a range of fundraising events to provide vital funds for projects in both the Junior and Senior schools.

The Friends organise events throughout the year. Everyone is welcome, simply contact School or the Friends group if you would like to learn more about any of the events listed below. All events are fundraisers to support the day to day educational experience of all our students in School.

If you don’t think the Friends is for you think again, there are many ways in which you can get involved.

How do I get involved?

Every day, there are projects at School that have been supported with help from the Friends. Recent projects include Coast 2 Coast sponsorship, Greenpower Race Team race sponsorship, Dark Room (part funding) for the Art Department, Junior School Leavers’ Theatre Company Production and the Robert Purshouse Astro-Turf team shelters.

There are lots of ways to get involved. No contribution is too small. For example:

  • Do you have a special skill or hobby that you can offer?
  • Could you help with events – meeting and greeting or refreshments?
  • Do you have marketing skills?
  • Could you donate prizes?
  • Would you sell event or raffle tickets?
  • Do you have ideas for future fundraising projects?

For more information please email The Friends at wgsfriends50@gmail.com

Avoid lost property at School with the help of the Friends

The Friends of Wolverhampton Grammar School have teamed up with Stikins Name Labels to support fundraising causes across School.

Stikins name labels are designed to be a truly multipurpose name labelling solution. One pack of stick on name labels can label pretty much everything and anything so you don’t have to buy different labelling products for different items i.e. the name labels are suitable for all kinds of school items, including school uniform, Games kit, and subject equipment.

Click on the button found on the School uniform page and every time our school fundraising number is quoted (you must remember to use the code 35504 every time you place an order!) you can help the Friends double their rate of commission to 30%.

Commit as little or as much time as you wish. You can support our work in lots of ways – from fundraising, attending events or even just coming along to our meetings and sharing your ideas!
