Friends of Pangbourne Primary School (FOPPS) is a PTA (Parent Teacher Association) which raises money to buy equipment and learning resources, and offer new experiences to all children at the school.

We also run major events for the local community, bringing people together to have fun and raise money for a good cause.

Over the years we have raised thousands of pounds and paid for a huge range of things including:

A new minibus


A new library

Coaches for school trips

School pianos


A bike shed and shelter 

Interactive white boards

Our main fundraising events are: Pangbourne Fireworks Fiesta, Pangbourne 10k, and the BBQ and bottle tombola at the Village Fete.

For pupils and parents at the school, we run cake sales, Christmas crafts, raffles, “Sunshine Fridays” Ice Cream sales, and lots of other fun events. We also hold social events so parents and children can get to know each other better, and offer second-hand uniform for sale as well as clothing recycling.
