Friends of Royal Liberty

The Friends of Royal Liberty School are the school’s PTA. We are open to membership by any parents/carers of students who attend Royal Liberty and all staff.

Our main aim is to arrange activities and events which will raise money to support the school and education of the students as well as provide social events.

In the past, the Friends have raised funds for playground table tennis tables and basketball hoops, Amazon Kindle Fires and Prom decorations. We currently have one fundraising goal and that is a new minibus for the school. This is a huge undertaking for us but one that will benefit all of the boys at Royal Liberty School.

Fundraising

FRLS carry out cake sales once a term and Christmas Gift / Mother’s Day / Father’s Day sales during school lunch hour so the boys can buy a gift for their relatives. We hold a yearly Uniform Raffle and our Big Christmas Raffle has been a huge success.

The Friends also sell tickets for West End Shows, host Quiz Nights for adults and fun quizzes for the boys during the school day. We sell discounted “Blue” Southend Adventure Island tickets via our email address for Royal Liberty School pupils and their families. Other events and promotions are advertised via school email and on our Facebook page.

For just £1 a week, you can support The Royal Liberty School, Gidea Park, by participating in www.yourschoollottery.co.uk with 40% of ticket sales going into our funds. One of our supporters is guaranteed to win every week and there is also a chance of winning the weekly £25,000 jackpot too!

Pre-Loved Uniform

We hold pre-loved uniform sales at Parents Evenings. However, sizes are limited as we can only sell what has been donated to us. So, when your son outgrows his PE kit or Blazer (or no longer needs his school tie), please give it a wash and hand it in to the office marked “Friends”. Much appreciated!
