Our Friends of Hampton Wick Infant and Nursery School (FHWINS) are fundamental in supporting close partnerships. They organise a wide range of events throughout the year including discos, cake sales, quiz nights and our annual May Fair. These events help to raise valuable funds which make our school even better and are fantastic social occasions. All parents and carers are automatically members of FHWINS and we hope that you will become actively involved.
The FHWINS have already agreed to run a variety of fun and seasonal fundraising events to entertain both children and adults alike. These include: Film Nights, Cake Sales, Raffles, Quiz nights, Christmas and May Fairs to name but a few. Please come and join in and support your child’s school!
Please keep an eye out for regular updates, meetings and ‘calls to action’ in the school’s weekly newsletter, ‘The Flying Newt’, on the school’s website.

It’s a brilliant mobile app that allows your Class Reps and event organisers to talk to you with ease. This app will allow you to buy tickets for events like Films nights and the May Fair.
