Friends of Shardlow

Welcome to Friends of Shardlow School


Friends of Shardlow School is the school's Parent Teacher Association, a very active and dedicated group of parents and staff who meet to discuss and arrange a variety of events to raise funds for school. Events include discos, summer and Christmas fairs, and chocolate bingo.

In recent years, we are really pleased to have raised enough funds to provide school with new ipads, funding towards transport for the annual Christmas pantomime trip,  furniture and equipment for the new reception unit, gardening equipment, and water for all pupils to enjoy.
