What OAFS Do
OAFS is a charity run by a committee of volunteers, the membership of which is open to friends, family and teachers of children who attend or have attended Oakfield Preparatory School.
We aim to strengthen our school community by providing additional facilities and organising events for the children, parents and teachers at Oakfield.
OAFS provide ‘cherry on top’ items for the school community that would not be within the normal scope
of the school’s budget.
Funds are raised primarily through a variety of social events during the school year, as well as the coordination of annual charity Christmas cards, second hand uniform and cakes sales.
This fundraising allows us to provide items such as playground equipment, specialist tools to enrich teaching in
the classroom and the lease of the school minibus.
We also run smaller events, targeting pupils in specific year groups, allowing the children to spend time
with their friends outside the classroom and enjoy an experience with them such as a story time, a film night
or a disco. These events are run at a minimal cost to the parents and hopefully maximum enjoyment of
Finally, committee members also give their time to support school Open Days and welcoming Coffee Mornings for new parents.
