The Friends Association

We have our own parents-school association known as the Friends of Bishop Ridley, which organises a variety of activities and events throughout the year to raise additional funds for the school. The Friends have recently raised money to help the school purchase playground equipment, pay for visiting theatre groups, subsidise the cost of trips and buy additional resources and ICT equipment. Events organised include Christmas and Summer Fairs, discos and coffee afternoons. We also work closely with the School Council to raise money for specific projects and charities. We have our own  facebook page and are always welcoming of new members and fresh ideas.


The Committee of Friends is made up of volunteers who meet regulary to plan events. The key officers of the Committee are:


Susan McGaughey


Kim Charlwood
