GSO Test


For those of you who are new to Thorntree...

FOTA stands for the Friends of Thorntree Association. They are a very active and supportive group of parents, guardians, carers and friends who all have, or know, children who currently attend or have attended Thorntree School. They organise fundraising and social events throughout the year such as summer fairs and Christmas fairs, quiz nights, cake sales, auctions of promises, and much more.  The money they raise goes towards funding for school equipment and ‘extras’ for the children. The parents, carers and friends of children attending Thorntree School are all automatically members of FOTA.

Names you need to know:

Chair: Mark Owen
Vice-Chair: Purvi Patel
Secretary: Katie O'Rielly
Treasurer: Janine Khoshnevisan

You can contact any of these people directly, contact the class reps, leave a written message for us at the Office or email us:
