Friends of Hillborough Junior School


The Friends of Hillborough Junior School are an organisation made from parents and staff who hold different events throughout the year to raise money for the school and pupils. We are currently only a small group, but if you are interested in joining us, please don't hesitate to contact the school. We organise the Christmas and Winter Festival which has lots of games, crafts and activities after school in the Christmas Term. We also hold a Christmas and Easter Disco just for the children after school, and we also hold the annual Summer Grill. The Summer Grill is a social event where we invite parents, friends and family to enjoy a BBQ on the school field with games, a raffle and entertainment, Keep an eye out on the events page for what is coming up each term.

Did you know? - Commemorative Coins to celebrate the Queen's Reign bought by the FRIENDS of Hillborough

The FRIENDS of Hillborough, which raises money for the children and the school, purchased a £2 commemorative coin for every child in the school to celebrate Queen Elizabeth becoming Britain's longest reigning monarch. The children will be able to keep this little piece of history and we hope that they will treasure it in the future and remember where it came from.

Easter Disco Success!

On Tuesday 24th March, many children from Hillborough stayed after school to attend the Easter Disco in the main hall. There were dance competitions, face painting, snacks and pocket money toys. Everyone had lots of fun and we managed to raise lots of money for the school. Thank you to everyone who came and to all the staff who helped out.

Christmas and Winter Festival Update


On Tuesday 2nd December, we held our annual Christmas and Winter Festival. It was hugely successful and we managed to raise lots of money for the school. Thank you to all of the parents, children and staff who donated items and to everyone who came along to support us. We couldn't do it without you. It was a fantastic event and we are looking forward to next year! After Christmas, in the Spring Term, we will be holding out Children's Easter Disco, so keep an eye out for more information about that.
