The Friends of Great Milton School organises many events throughout the year. We are an extremely successful team raising thousands of pounds every year for the school. Our lovely school playground equipment is just one example of an area of the school that has benefitted from funds raised, providing our children with a fantastic outdoor experience every break and lunchtime.

This year’s efforts are continuing towards raising money to redevelop the pond area. Work has begun already with ideas being put forward by the school Eco Council.

FOGMS organised the amazing BIG NIGHT OUT in June 2016, raising over £10,000 for the school. Gaz Coombes, The Hoo Has and Great Milton Dads played fabulous sets, and it proved to be a great occasion for those from Great Milton C of E School life, and for those from the local community too. See the photos below.

We also have a supply of second hand school uniform and hold regular sales, but if you need any then just get in touch.

The committee always welcomes new members. Come along to a meeting at The Bull in Great Milton, get to know us and enjoy fundraising for our wonderful school!
