West Chiltington Friends of the School Association Registered Charity no.298245 (FOSA)

For many years West Chiltington Community School has prided itself on a very active and dedicated parent-led fundraising group. It is your ideas, support and skills that continue to underpin our success. Please do come and get involved, even a small amount of time or simply an idea or advice for improvement can make a huge difference. And it's also a lot of fun!

Essentially FOSA organises events on behalf of the school to raise money for enhancing the education and experiences of our children, by enabling the provision of facilities not normally covered by the Local Authority.

We currently run the following events: SCHOOL DISCOS, CHRISTMAS FAIR, CHRISTMAS CAROLS, and the MAY FAIR, and also a school uniform thrift stall throughout the year.

At FOSA's heart is a small committee of volunteers, supported by class representatives and other parents, school staff and members of the community. Anybody is welcome to join at any time.

The FOSA committee consists of the following posts, elected every year at the AGM:

Chair: Selina McKee

Vice-Chair: Christa McKee-Lerbs

Treasurer: Mairi McComb

Secretary: Sylvia Hoad

Committee meetings are generally held once a month on a Friday afternoon in school. These are open to everyone and pre-school children are warmly welcomed!

Any activities run by FOSA are hugely dependent on the support and involvement of the wider parent body, helpers who do not belong to the full committee but are able to provide support at specific events or help with odd jobs throughout the year. Please do get in touch if you can offer any help toward planning and/or running these events.

Please email for further information.
