Friends of Horton-in-Ribblesdale School (FOHS)




Pudding and Prosecco Party - Friday 3rd March. This was a lovely, social evening. Thank you so for all the wonderful puddings. It was great to see the school hall full of people.

A warm welcome to you from the Friends of the school.


Some years ago it was decided that we would change from being a Parent Teacher Association (PTA) and become the Friends of Horton School. This was to encourage the wider community to become more involved in our work, raising funds for the benefit of the school children. The school is so lucky to have the help and support of many individuals from the surrounding area, from those who regularly come in to hear the children read, the Mothers Union ladies who organise fun events for the children to the villagers who regularly join school for lunch etc. We would like to encourage anyone who has a few spare hours to join us in our fund raising efforts and to enjoy the vibrant, family atmosphere of our lovely, village school.We welcome and value new faces and ideas; anything to support our fantastic school.

Chocolate bingo 2015 


A typical family "haul" of chocolate from Chocolate Bingo night.



Fantastic evening at school last night. Chocolate bingo was as big a hit as ever. Many thanks to the 40+ children ( pupils, past pupils and their friends), parents, teachers and friends who came to join in. Special thanks to Mrs Atkinson ( pizza chef), Mrs Edwards ( for coming up to Horton on her day off) and Mr Pattinson for bingo calling. It was amazing how quickly everything was tidied away, with everybody helping. Many thanks to all the FOHS helpers for organising all the fun, and to all those who donated chocolate and raffle prizes.

Am amazing  £252.10  profit. Thank you everyone.
