Friends of Uplands
As a school Uplands continues to go from strength to strength and we are very grateful to you, our parents, for your continued support which enables this to happen.
We are keen to constantly improve the school environment for our students, your children, but are often restricted by funding. The core funding received from the government pays for all of the operational costs of the school but there is rarely any capacity for extras.
We intend that throughout your child’s time here at Uplands, improvements will be funded in many areas of their school life.
To discuss this further please contact us on 01892 786575 or through email on firstname.lastname@example.org Please get in touch if you would like to be involved in whatever capacity; we would appreciate your support.

Easyfundraising is a great way to raise money for free, simply by shopping online through a website www.easyfundraising.org.uk
Whenever you buy anything online (e.g. Christmas presents, groceries, clothes, books, train tickets, hotel rooms, etc.) you can raise a free donation for Uplands. There are over 2,700 retailers registered with the site, including Amazon, John Lewis, eBay and Tesco who will donate a percentage of what you spend to the college to say thank you for shopping with them.
