Friends of Elstree

The Friends of Elstree Committee brings together parents and school staff to organise a programme of social and fundraising activities for the benefit of the whole Elstree community.  

At the beginning of each term the Committee organises coffee mornings for all parents which provides a great opportunity to get to know one another and to catch up after the holidays. Year group lunches and events for the whole school are held throughout the year including the Welcome Back Drinks Party at the beginning of the academic year, a Bonfire and Fireworks party at the beginning of November and a summer fete in June as well as supporting many other school events. We also have the fantastic Summer Social to look forward to on June 14th.

The money raised from 2017/18 will be going to Ufton Court Educational Trust, Juvenile Diabetic Research Foundation (JDRF) and The Mary Hare School.  Ufton Court Educational Trust is an innovative charity that aims to change children’s lives through challenging and inspirational learning outside the classroom.  They aim to raise aspiration and achievement of all children and those from disadvantaged backgrounds.  JDRF fund type 1 diabetes research to improve lives and one day eradicate the condition for good.  The Mary Hare School is a school for deaf children based in Newbury.  They take children of both primary and secondary age and are the largest school for the deaf in the UK, taking both day and boarding pupils.  

Getting involved

Each year group is represented by a parent on the Committee who meet regularly during term time to plan events. The Friends of Elstree Committee always welcomes new members, whether new to the school or those who have been at Elstree for some time. For more information or to get involved you can contact Lizzie Johnstone by emailing  We are always interested in new ideas and feedback on what we are doing and of course practical help at each event is welcomed.  We would be most grateful for your support.
