Friends of West Newcastle Academy

The Friends of West Newcastle is a registered charity that will support the school throughout the year by:

  • organising fundraising events
  • arranging fun activities for children and families
  • bringing the school community together

All parents and guardians automatically become members of The Friends when their child joins the school. Staff and governors are also Friends and membership extends to interested members of the local community.


We have two types of memberships:

  • Active (those members who want to take part in organising events and can be elected to one of the committee positions)
  • Passive (those who want to support the friends by taking part on activities but may not have as much time to offer)

Volunteering with The Friends is a rewarding experience and is a great way to meet other parents and become involved with the life of the school. It would be much-appreciated if as many parents as possible could get involved and give their support!

To become involved with The Friends, please contact the school office via email wna‑
