The Friends of Terrington Hall

The Friends of Terrington Hall is a small committee, made up of current parents and staff. It works hard as a fundraising and friend-raising body, to organise events that bring the school community together.

Our community doesn’t begin and end with parents. It also includes current and past staff members, alumni, the wider family and friends, and members of the local community.

The first of the two key objectives of The Friends is to fundraise for specific projects that are outside the school’s core budget; a recent example would be the staging of a school Family Fun Run which enabled the acquisition of several zorbing balls that could be utilised by boarders on summer nights on our vast playing fields!

Historically, we have also funded the development of the Pre-Prep playground, additional sports equipment and soft furnishings for the boarding houses.

Bringing people together

Secondly, and of equal importance, is the aim of acting as an organiser of events that bring people together and enhance the sense of community that is evident within the school. A recent example would be the Centenary Ball, attended by over 150 people on a beautiful summer’s evening, which was a great success.

Other events that are held throughout the year are our Burns Night, Fireworks Evening and legendary Christmas Fair. Previous events have included Terrington Strictly Come Dancing, a Sporting Dinner, Family Fun Days, and the Three Peaks Challenge.

Get involved!

We are always looking for new members so if anyone is interested in joining the committee, suggesting a new event, or supporting in a specific way then please get in touch.

We hope to see you at future events as part of this great community.

With best wishes,

The Friends of Terrington Hall
