The Firs' Ball - Save the date and get ready for a dance, 23rd April 2022

A request for support from our Firs PTA

The Firs PTA ball happens every two years but due to COVID-19, we haven’t been able to get our dancing shoes on since 2018.

So, this year on 23rd April, the Ball is back and there will be a chance to eat, meet friends and dance the night away.

Tickets will be on sale at the end of this month but to make this fantastic event raise as much money for our children as possible we need your help. We have previously raised funds to buy all the Chromebooks that the children use in lessons and this time we are looking to top previous efforts and fundraise for not just one, but three great initiatives to provide even more learning support for our children.

We would like our children to make the most of the facilities and unique setting we have here at The Firs.

The Firs Ball 2018


We’ve set a £15,000 fundraising target, so they can enjoy more nature, more sport and more reading by doubling our Forest School provision, bringing in new specialist sports coaching and recruiting a brand-new lunchtime librarian.

We are aiming to fund each of these for at least two years so that as many children get the benefit. Through this extra-curricular support, we would like to help our children be curious and caring about the world around them and enjoy the amazing setting we are lucky enough to have here at The Firs.

To be able to achieve all of this we are looking for sponsors and auction prizes from local companies. Big or small, it all counts! In previous years, we’ve had support from many local and national companies, including money can’t buy experiences, which have all really helped us – we’d love to know if you or your employer could support us and help us hit our target.

We know that you’re all really busy, but your support will make all the difference in helping us achieve our fundraising target – our ask is if you could spare 5 minutes having a think about how you might be able to support this. Please email us on or grab one of us at the gate. We’re friendly, we promise!

Let’s make the Firs ball a night to remember for us and give our kids new experience and learning support for many years – thank you!
