Parent & Teacher Association
Friends of Hewett is a parent-led registered charity (1187100) fundraising to create events and opportunities to enrich our school environment, promote wellbeing, build confidence and empower every Hewett Academy student to fulfil their potential.
Founded in September 2019 by three parents, Friends of Hewett has raised over £100,000 in the academic year 19/20.
Parent volunteers have created a welcoming community lounge within the school to support student wellbeing and encourage families to connect with the school.
Other events have included the creation of an eco-garden and the provision of support to families during the Covid-19 crisis including gifts of art materials, laptops and wi-fi to ensure no Hewett Academy student was left without online access to maintain their education and social contract.
The Friends of Hewett charity is financially entirely separate to the school and the Inspiration Trust. It is parent-run, but works closely with school leadership to support our school to thrive.
We look forward to welcoming new families to join Friends of Hewett.
