About Bishop Wood Buddies

  Bishop Wood School Association, known as Bishop Wood Buddies, is managed by a committee of parents and staff, the parents being elected at an annual general meeting held each September or October.  New faces on the committee will always be welcome.
  As a PTA our focus is firmly based on raising funds for the school to enhance our children's education and recreational needs by hosting fun events for the whole family to enjoy. The Bishop Wood School Association's constitution states that, of the annual sum donated to the school, 75% should be spent on major projects and 25% should be allocated to smaller items.

Buddies has two functions:

  • As a fund-raising organisation, we aim to pay for the extras which make the school more effective and enjoyable for our children.
  • To organise the social events which bring parents and school closer together.

Throughout the year Buddies combine these two functions by putting on events including discos for children, quizzes for grown-ups as well as family events such as the ever popular Snail Race Night and, of course, the Summer Fayre.  Link to the Gallery Pages to see photographs of past events.

The Autumn term is always very busy for Buddies with lots of seasonal activities taking place. Apart from putting on Discos, Buddies help administer the children's Christmas card designs, pay for and decorate the Christmas Tree, provide refreshments at the Christmas Concerts and organise and run the Christmas Market. It is a lovely time of year in school and a great way to get involved with children and other parents.

  At the last AGM the following parents and friends were elected to the committee:
  Chair Sam Hodge

Vice Chair

Sophie Shepherd
  Treasurer Helen Cole


Annette Webbley
  Committee Members Angela Kellet
Rachel Cobb
Nichaela Fisher
Helen Imrie
Jacq Hart
Hayley Abel (Governor Rep)
Paula Birley (Teacher Rep)

If you would like to get involved in Buddies please contact Buddies direct on, via the school office on or the Buddies facebook page.
