Friends of Lace Hill Academy

The Friends of Lace Hill Academy aim to support the Academy by:

  • Providing opportunities and organising events for the children.
  • Enabling parents to play an active role in school life.
  • Helping to create a supportive school community, where families feel welcome.
  • Supporting staff at the Academy by helping with different school events.
  • Fundraising to generate additional income for the school to benefit the children.

Getting Involved

The Friends of Lace Hill Academy started in September 2016 and is gradually evolving as the school grows.

Our aim is to make the Friends of LHA as accessible as possible, so that anyone who would like to join us is very welcome to. We recognise that not everyone has lots of spare time or evenings to dedicate to committee meetings, so instead we have set up the Friends of Lace Hill Academy Facebook group where we can share ideas and organise different events.

We will be meeting up at different points throughout the year to discuss and progress ideas but this will be done on an informal basis (probably involving tea and cake!) It is a great way to share ideas and get to know other parents - everyone is welcome to come along.
