‘Friends of ALNS’ – Upcoming Events

The ‘Friends of ALNS’ intent to continue this academic year as we ended the last, providing resourced to benefit all students and staff at the school. We hope we can enlist your support in fulfilling as many as possible. Below are some of the events we have in the diary already and we look forward to seeing students, staff and parents at any that appeal to you.

We are still gathering names of any parents/friend/staff members who may be interested in joining the 100 club. We need 100 numbers allocated and money collected before this can be launched (£5 a month). 3 numbers are drawn at random each month and each number will win £100 each. The remaining money will go to ‘Friends of ALNS’ to support school resource requests. To register interest, please contact on [email protected]
