Friends of SMCS

You may wish to become involved with the Friends of Stoke Mandeville.  The Friends of Stoke Mandeville Combined School are a group of parents who organise fun events throughout the year to raise money for the school. The Friends are an extremely important and highly valued part of the school raise vital funds for the school facilities and equipment. In recent years they have contributed towards:


  • Purchasing games equipment for children to use during breaks and lunchtime play
  • Covering the travel costs for Singing Club to perform at the O2
  • Paying travel costs for the whole school to go on a pantomime trip
  • Buying a new school minibus
  • Providing guided reading books across the school


In addition, the Friends organise a range of events for the benefit of the pupils and the whole school community. In recent years these events have included a Bingo Night, Quiz Night, Children’s Disco, Christmas Craft Fayre and Summer Barbeque.

The School relies heavily on the money raised by the "Friends" and we are eager to help in any way we can.  If you can spare some time to support the school please come along to a "Friends" meeting.  
The "Friends" also have their own website, please find details below -
