The Friends of The Solent Schools (FSS) is a registered charity which raises funds and organises exciting activities and events for the children at Solent Infant School and at Solent Junior School. We also provide funding and support for special activities within both schools.

The FSS is overseen by a committee consisting of elected officers.  All parents, guardians and extended family members of children in the Infant and Junior school are automatically members of the FSS. Any member can join the committee or attend meetings at any time.

The current FSS committee:-


  Chair  Lisa Felstead   Vice Chair Polly Lodge  
  Treasurer  Izzy Cordery   Publicity and
Kate Lewis  
  Secretary Janet Tutton     Sammi Owen  
    Denise Weston     Donna Sharpe  

Our Events:

Throughout the year we organise lots of exciting events and activities – these events include the children, teachers and parents and are always fantastic fun for everyone involved!. Some of our regular fundraising events include:

  • Christmas and Summer Fayres

  • Quiz Nights

  • Family Picnic Evening

  • Easter Egg Hunt

  • Danceathon

  • Christmas ‘Pop up’ Shop

  • Parent’s Disco

  • Book Fundraiser Day

  • Personalised Christmas Cards

  • Christmas & Easter Drawing Competition (Infant School).

We are always looking for ideas for new and exciting events and activities we could organise. We are friendly and approachable, so if you have an idea for a new event please do get in touch, or attend one of our monthly committee meetings – who knows your idea may be our next big ‘event’!


We meet on the first Friday of each month in the Lighthouse Room at the Infant school, at 1.30pm – everyone in our ‘Solent Community’ is always very welcome to attend. The meetings are always informal, and generally accompanied by copious amounts of tea and cake!. So why not come along and get involved – we’d love to hear your thoughts!.


How you can help:

There are a variety ways you can help, by coming along to our meetings, joining a working party to organise an event, manning a stall at our fayres, or simply by coming along to our events and donating towards our fundraising activities. Every donation, be it time, money or effort is always greatly appreciated, and makes such a difference for the children at Solent Infant School and at Solent Junior School!

We look forward to seeing you at one of our events or meetings in the near future!
