Friends of Wymondham College Prep School
Friends of Wymondham College Prep (FOWCP) is made up of parents, carers, guardians and other community members working closely with the school to raise additional funds. When your child joins the school you automatically become a member.
FOWCP is about much more than simply fundraising. It exists to provide closer links between home and school and it is an excellent way to bring everyone together in support of the school working towards a common goal.
We have recently funded an outdoor classroom, which is named the Nature Nest. Our current main fundraising goals are to provide funds to support the area around the Nature Nest, learning resources and recreational play equipment.
We are registered with both EasyFundraising and Your School Lottery. We also have some great deals with name label suppliers. Please see the attachment to see which companies support FOWCP when you purchase through them.
We are a registered charity, our charity number is 1198845.
