Friends of GCS

Friends logo JPEGA warm welcome to all parents, carers, relatives and friends of Guildford County School

The Friends of GCS is an enthusiastic team of volunteers who aim to provide a sense of community between parents, students and the school.  We also aim to raise funds which are used to benefit our students.

We always welcome new members and even if you do not wish to attend the meetings, we would be delighted if you can spare some time to help out at one or more of our events throughout the year.

This year we want to grow our community.

Our fundraising efforts this year will be split into two parts; to support the ‘wish list’ from teachers for items such as microscopes, digital weather station equipment etc and also to provide a substantial donation to improving the sports facilities.

NEWS: Our Friends need you!

Would you like to join our fabulous Friends committee? This small and dynamic group is responsible for achieving over £20 000 of income for equipment purchase to benefit our students in 2016/2017 - making a meaningful difference to students lives at Guildford County. We are looking for two people:

Volunteer Co-ordinator 

Chair of the Friends

Karen Telfer kindly handles both roles at present -  please get in touch should you have any questions or if you'd like to express your interest ( By separating these two roles, we're ensuring neither is too burdensome, even if you can only dedicate a few hours each month.

Without these volunteers, we will be unable to run our Friends fundraising and community events, which add so much fun (and funding!) to our warm community. So please come forward!

Thank you.
