Friends of CGS

Welcome to the Friends of Caistor Grammar School


A very warm welcome to all the new parents and students. When you joined the school in September you became Friends of CGS. Friends include anyone who helps with school activities, whether they have students at School or not.


Friends support School in many ways, such as raising funds to provide your children with equipment that School wouldn’t otherwise be able to fund. Over the years Friends have raised significant funds which has been put to good use for the benefit of all students.


We welcome your help, not only by attending the school when your child is involved in something, but also in other ways. If you feel you can contribute to the student experience in any way, please get in touch via email.

In particular we need help with the following:

  • Serving refreshments at numerous school events
  • Helping with fundraising
  • Organising and selling pre-loved uniform
  • Finance & Accounts experience – We need a new Treasurer! – training given.
  • Help with the school production
  • Work experience placements


Friends meet up roughly once or twice a term depending on what is coming up, and the minutes are emailed out to members to keep you informed. We hope you will join us in furthering the experiences of CGS students.

If you require more information or wish to discuss anything, please get in touch through the friend’s email.
