As the official parent body of St James the Great School we are pleased to play an important part in the life of the school. In addition to organising social activities for parents and children, we continually work hard in fund-raising for the school.

Over recent years the Association has been able to provide the school with transport facilities through the provision of a 53 seater Coach and two 17 seater Mini Buses, which enables the school to run a significant number of additional educational visits for whole year groups. The efforts of the Friends Association have also seen the installation of adventure play equipment for both the junior, infant and nursery sections of the school; external seating; a range of computer equipment; along with occasional funding for school events and small items of equipment.

Our main fundraising event is the bi-annual summer fete.
