Friends Of Castle Wood

Friends of Castle Wood School is a charity which was established in 2009 when Government funding for extended services ended and we needed to raise funds to enable us to continue with our extended services provision. 

Friends of Castle Wood runs Saturday clubs and holiday schemes for children with special educational needs. We rely on external funding from charitable trusts and foundations in addition to fundraising to ensure that these clubs continue to run. We need to raise in the region of £43,000 in grant funding per year to be able to keep our provision going.

We currently have 50 children on our Saturday register and 82 children attended our 3 week summer scheme in 2016.  This is an invaluable resource for the children and their parents so we need to do all we can to keep it going.
