Friends of Nook Lane

FONL is a group of parents and teachers whose aim is to raise money for Nook Lane Juniors.

They offer a variety of events to parents and children, which the school benefit from through monies raised. These have included items to expand the children's skills, learning and knowledge. The money also extends to subsidising some trips.

They are a friendly and welcoming group of working mums and dads who all get together with teachers once a month for an hour to organise future events. As we all know, funds to schools have been cut so every little helps.

If you feel you could give a little time to help at events for half an hour or would like to join FONL we would love to welcome you.

Happy's Circus

One of the most memorable and exciting events in Nook Lane's history was the night the circus came to town!

Happy's Circus arrived at Nook Lane and set up the Big Top on the school field for a truly entertaining and dazzling night of amazing acrobatics, impressive balancing, incredible juggling and much hilarity and fun for the children and families of the Nook Lane community.

This was all due to the brilliant work done by our parents' group Friends of Nook Lane who had the initial idea, booked the circus and prepared for the night within just six short weeks.

The circus was a tremendous success with around 550 children and adults having a wonderful time. The spectacular event raised over £2000 for the school. An incredible experience! A massive thank you to everyone involved.
