Henry's Friends is a charitable organisation, established soon after the school opened in 2004.


Our objectives are to raise funds in support of the education
of the children of Henry Chichele Primary School.
We do this by arranging events which are open to the public.

Henry's Friends are grateful for your support with the extra things we do in our school!

Please speak to a member of the Committee if you would like further information on joining Henry's Friends.

Henry’s Friends is a dedicated team of parents and school staff who work together to raise funds for our school. The money is spent in different ways to support and enhance the educational facilities offered to our children.

We do this by organising fun and inclusive events, which we hope will bring our school and community together.

We have a core team who plan and organise our events, but we always welcome additional support from parents. If you are able to help on any of our upcoming events, please do not hesitate to let one of the committee know, or ask for more information at the school office.

We have a committee meeting once a term, and these meetings are open to all parents who would like to come along and see what we are about. We very much value your support.

During 2018/19 the committee working extremely hard to raise a massive £7000! This will be used during the next academic year to enhance outdoor play provision. We are hoping that 2019/20 will also be a fantastic year of fundraising but also lots of opportunities for families to come together to celebrate what a FANTASTIC school we have. Do try to join us if you can. Meetings are always well advertised on the school calendar; held in the evenings on the school premises.

A list of items we have purchased in 2017/18 year include the following;

  • Multi Media projector for theatre production
