The Friends of Torrington Bluecoat is an enthusiastic group of parents, carers, friends and staff who are an integral part of the school community raising vital funds for your children. This money is spent on improving equipment and resources to enhance our children’s education and school facilities in general.

It is much more than just fundraising. FoTB exists to provide closer links between home and school, and it is an excellent way to bring staff, parents and friends together socially in support of the school and working towards a common goal.

All members of the school community automatically become members of FoTB and your support is welcomed. You can get involved in many ways – sharing fundraising ideas, helping organise events, showing your support at events either by helping us to run them or simply by coming along with your children. Any help you can give would be appreciated.

Most importantly we have a group of volunteers who help organise and run our events without whom none of this would be possible.


The 2021/2022 elected committee officers are:

Chair: Julie Turner

Vice Chair: Jill Bond & Nicky Hedden (Joint)

Secretary: Gemma Vaggers

Treasurer: Sallie Gaskin

Ordinary Committee Members: Annette Bright, Sam Avery, Nicola Ashelford, Angie Diamond

If you would like to know more please contact us at or leave your details with school reception and we’ll be in touch.

The Friends of Torrington Bluecoat is a charitable association registered with the Charity Commission as charity number 1028175.
