Friends of St Mary's (FOSM)


The Friends of St Mary’s School Knaresborough (FOSM) is a registered charity who organise events to raise funds for St Mary’s School. These funds help the students of St Mary’s School by providing additional resources for curriculum enrichment and social activities. The Friends of St Mary’s is run by a voluntary committee of trustees governed by a constitution (LINK). All parents/carers and guardians and staff are automatic members, but alumni, grandparents or anyone else willing to support the objects of the FOSM can apply to become a member. Members receive a weekly newsletter, can stand as Trustees and have the right to vote at general meetings of the Charity.


‘‘How can I help?’’ we hear you cry.

‘‘ Volunteer!’’ we reply.

Volunteer for the COMMITTEE, for an EVENT, make suggestions, have ideas.

No time to attend events or meetings?

No worries, do you have the SKILLS to design a poster, wrap presents, manage the social media pages, take photos. Or do you have a BUSINESS? Could you donate prizes for raffles or sponsor the Christmas Fair. Let us know what ideas you have and how you want to help ‘‘Make School a Community’’ for all our children.

All parents of children in school have automatic membership of the Friends of St Mary's.
