Learn About Us
The Friends of Filton Avenue Orchard is a Parent/Teacher/Friend Association.
The FFAO is an open community of parent volunteers working alongside the school, teachers and other “friends” to benefit the school and ensure the best educational experience for all its pupils.
All parents and carers at Filton Avenue School are automatically a member of the association. It’s your association. You can get involved in a small or big way, make a cake, run a refreshment stall, contribute ideas at meetings, make things, donate, organise an event, keep our accounts....we can't do what we do without help. Be part of our team!
