FONTS aims to help and support the school and provide a social network for the parents and teachers.

It provides practical help at functions such as concerts, plays and school trips. They raise hundreds of pounds for the school.  This has allowed different areas of the school  to benefit from equipment that would not normally have been purchased.

New stage equipment, computer notebooks and visualiser readers have all been purchased with FONTS money.

How can parents help?

  • Attend two FONTS meetings where you can find out about future events.  These are advertised on the school Facebook page and this web site.
  • Help with refreshments at school events.
  • Attend fund raising occasions.
  • Join the 100 Lottery Club which runs from January each year.  It costs £12 to join with £20, £15 and £10 awarded each month in a prize draw.

The best way you can help is actually the easiest. 

(The company you make a purchase from gives money to FONTS without any cost to you!)

Register and support The Nelson Thomlinson School PTA.  Save easy fund raising to your desk top or favourites tab
