Friends of Crudwell School
Friends of Crudwell School (FOCS) is a registered charity (registered charity number: 1121210) and exists to support the school and to fundraise for the extras that make our children's learning a better experience. We also organise events that are fun for all and include the wider community.

Crudwell Christmas Cracker 2022
We raised an fantastic amount from our latest Christmas activities which included; Jewellery and Wreath making, Christmas Card designs, Silent Auction and Raffle, the ever popular Bundle Bags and of course the day itself - the physical Fair at the school with Santa's Grotto.
Thank you to everyone involved and we hope you all had lots of fun!
Summer Fete 2022
Another glorious day for our fantastic Summer fundraising event.
Caretaker days 2021 / 2022
An opportunity for us all to come together and make a difference! Cleaning a window, weeding the plant beds, painting the shed and helping with the general maintenance of the school to give our children and staff a positive place to work and play.
We always find ways to (safely) come together and have fun during the pandemic, and this Christmas was no exception. After the purely virtual Fair last year, it was great to have a small physical one this time round, not to mention all the other elements too, giving everyone a chance to get involved in a way that suited them.
Summer Fete 2021
We were so proud to be one of the only schools in the local areas to forge ahead with a (carefully constructed) Summer Fete during the Pandemic - and it was absolutely worth all the effort.
Not the Crudwell Bike Ride - June 2020
Even though we couldn't come together in the usual way for a Christmas Fair - we found plenty of ways to create festive fun for all the family with our VIRTUAL Fair.
Bedtime Stories read by the Teachers for the children to watch at home with our specially prepared take home Hot Chocolate's. AMAZING prizes in our Silent Auction and Raffle, weekly on-line competitions, A Village Treasure Hunt, plus the Marketplace for some lovely present ideas from local shops and business'. I am so proud of the FOCS team and all they achieved given the very difficult circumstances and restrictions, and thank you to everyone that engaged and supported the events - we hope you enjoyed it!
Santa Dash 2019

Crudwell Crackers 2018
A team of parents/carers (named the 'Crudwell Crackers' by the pupils) had entered the Bath Half Marathon to raise money for FOCS. However, this was unfortunately cancelled due to snow. Not to put off, some of them decided to run a half marathon anyway, but around Crudwell instead of Bath!
