Friends of the Academy

The Friends of the Academy is a group of enthusiastic and committed parents and friends of the Academy who are willing to give up some of their time to organise and support events throughout the School year.

The role of the Friends of the Academy is to enable cohesion between the academy, teachers, parents, former parents, former staff, our local community and extended families through social and fundraising events and activities. All the aforementioned groups are automatically Friends of the Academy.

The aims of the Friends of the Academy are:

  • To provide a social framework for the above groups, to promote close co-operation and communication between those groups across the academy.
  • To engage Friends at events and activities throughout the year, especially those new to the Lostock Hall Academy community.
  • To raise funds to cover the costs of events, whilst having fun.
  • Friends of the Academy fundraising aims to enrich Lostock Hall Academy students’ education by proving equipment and materials to enhance the facilities of the academy

We are always keen for more parents to get involved with FOTA. For more information please email
