Supporting Lawnswood School

There are many ways in which you can support Lawnswood School;

Friends of Lawnswood Opportunities Fund

Friends of Lawnswood have established an Opportunities Fund to support disadvantaged students with school trips, keepsakes and other extracurricular or enrichment activities. If you would like to donate to the Opportunities Fund, either as a one-off or on a regular basis please e-mail the Fund Coordinator at

There is no obligation to donate any money to the Opportunities Fund.


Friends of Lawnswood help support school events such as concerts, performances and the school open day. We also run large scale events ourselves such as the annual cabaret and Art Show. We always need volunteers to help serve refreshments, organise raffles, set up exhibitions, stages etc. Please email if you would like to add your name to the list of volunteers we can contact.


We hold meetings once every half-term. As well as organising the fund-raising events, we also make decisions on our priorities for the year, funding requests from teachers and how we can effectively support the School with its activities. We are always looking for people to contribute in these decisions and to bring a broader perspectives and fresh ideas.  Please see the “Meeting” tab for details when they are held.


The School runs various careers initiatives for all year groups. Curiosity Fairs and Careers events aim to introduce students to the world of work and the huge variety of careers available. The School have found that the best way to engage students is to invite people to talk about their place of work. We have organised a database of parents willing to take part in these events, including jewellery designers, palliative care nurses, community workers, lawyers, economists, small business owners, finance officers and many more, all of which have found the events very rewarding. If you would like to be included in this database please let us know.
