Friends of The Earls is a group of parents, teachers and associates of the school, who meet regularly throughout the academic year to support the school and its pupils.
Friends of the Earls organise events such as coach trips to London, Windsor and Chester amongst other places and there is almost always a Christmas Market coach trip organised in early December.
We also host fashion shows and quiz nights at the school, and run a tombola stall at Halesowen Carnival – we are always grateful for support shown at these events. All profits raised at these events are given back to the school for the benefit of its pupils. Musical instruments, sports equipment, and books have been provided in recent years along with a host of other items.
Friends of the Earls members can be seen serving refreshments at parent’s evenings, dance and music shows and open evenings – any donations for these are greatly received and are again donated back to the school.
We also have a very successful student Friends of the Earls for pupils from years 7-11 and currently have approximately 60 student members. We are very proud to say that they received a prestigious Dudley Youth Award in 2018, and were nominated in two categories again in 2019.
Friends of the Earls also run a successful mini school lottery. This is a major fundraising activity, with 50% of the proceeds going towards projects at the school, and the remaining 50% returned in prize money to winning participants. This is open to parents, staff, family members and friends. Your support for the lottery would be much appreciated and details of how the scheme works, along with an entry form and winner’s names can be found by clicking on the link at the foot of this page.
