Welcome to the vibrant hub of community engagement and fundraising at Horsmonden Primary Academy, powered by the Friends of Horsmonden Primary School (FoHPS) PTA! Here at FoHPS, we’re dedicated to enhancing the school experience for our children by organising a plethora of exciting events and initiatives. From electrifying discos to cosy movie nights, thrilling raffles to festive autumn gatherings, enchanting World Book Day celebrations to lively Easter and Christmas events, there’s never a dull moment with FoHPS. The crown jewel of our calendar is undeniably the annual summer fair, eagerly anticipated by students, families, and the wider community alike. Bursting with a kaleidoscope of activities, each class hosts a stall, complemented by external vendors showcasing local goods and services. Our esteemed social club crafts a convivial atmosphere with their renowned beer tent, while the school tantalises taste buds with a sizzling BBQ and refreshing Pimms tent. The summer fair isn’t just an event; it’s a testament to the boundless spirit of unity and support that defines FoHPS, making it the highlight of our school year.
