Thank you all for your recycling your unwanted things in the Bag to School campaign. In 2014 we raised over £188 by participating in the Bag to School collection scheme.   On the 22nd February 2017 the school created this huge pile for collection. The amount of money raised will be displayed here once the Bag to School team have confirmed how much it weighed.

We currently have over £5,000 available to be used against funding requests.  Please come along to the next Friends of Middleton meeting to understand how this money can be used to benefit all pupils at the school.

 

If you are able to lend a hand, please email friends@middletonschool.org and ask for your name to be added to the helper list.  When an event is planned we will contact you to see if you are available.

Thank you!

To all the helpers who have attended our events.  Lots of help is always required before and during the events & we would not be able to be as successful as we are without your help!
