Friends of The Oratory Prep School (FOPS)
FOPS is the parents’ organisation at The Oratory Prep School. Founded in 1994, their vision is to foster The OPS community by welcoming new families and creating events within the school year to enhance the OPS experience for all pupils, parents, teachers and staff.
Some of the highlights of the school year include:
- Bonfire Night celebrations with an amazing fireworks display (November)
- Christmas Fair with the famous Santa’s Grotto & Christmas Trail (December)
- Summer Fete (May)
- Parents Summer Ball (not to be missed!)
The events not only enhance the school community, but also have a fundraising element for both local charities and to provide additional facilities for the school, which would not otherwise be affordable. These additional purchases are not traditional school investments, but fun “extras”.
Current fundraising is focused on providing a zip wire for both the older pupils and the younger years.
