The Friends of The Solent Schools (FSS) is a registered charity which raises funds and organises exciting activities and events for the children at Solent Infant School and at Solent Junior School. We also provide funding and support for special activities within both schools.
The FSS is overseen by a committee consisting of elected officers. All parents, guardians and extended family members of children in the Infant and Junior school are automatically members of the FSS. Any member can join the committee or attend meetings at any time.

Throughout the year we organise lots of exciting events and activities - these events include the children, teachers and parents and are always fantastic fun for everyone involved! Some of our regular fundraising events include:
• Christmas and Summer Fayres • Quiz Nights • Family Picnic Evening • Easter Egg Hunt • Christmas 'Pop up' Shop • Parent's Disco • Book Fundraiser Day • Personalised Christmas Cards • Christmas & Easter Drawing Competition (Infant School).
We are always looking for ideas for new and exciting events and activities we could organise. We are friendly and approachable so if you have an idea for a new event please do get in touch, or alternatively please come along to one of our meetings - who knows your idea may be our next big event!
We meet regularly throughout the year at either the Infant or Junior School. Everyone in our 'Solent Community' is always very welcome to attend. Our meetings are always informal and generally accompanied by copious amounts of tea and cake ! So why not come along and get involved - we'd love to hear your thoughts.
How you can help:
There are a variety of ways you can help and get involved with the FSS, from attending one of our meetings, manning a stall at our fayres, volunteering for one of our other events or simply by coming along to our events and donating towards our fundraising activities. Every donation - be it your time or money is always very greatly appreciated and makes such a difference for the children at the Solent Schools.
We look forward to seeing you at one of our events or meetings in the near future!
We are also very lucky to have the continued support of Northwood Letting and Estate Agents in Drayton, who give generously to our fundraising efforts throughout the year!
