Welcome to FOHNS

Friends of Hook Norton School (FOHNS) is a small, friendly group of enthusiastic parents and school staff who raise funds to enrich and support the education of our children. We do this through organising various social events and other fundraising initiatives throughout the year.



Hook Norton School Jubilee Fete

The Friends of Hook Norton School invite you all to a ‘Jubilee Fete’ on Saturday 25th June, 3pm – 6pm in the primary school grounds.  


The afternoon promises to be fun packed and themed with everything Royal and uniquely British. Here’s a snapshot of what we have planned:

Bounce away on the (bouncy) Castle, guess how many Pearls the Queen has in her jewellery box, enter the Royal Raffle for your chance to win an array of fabulous prizes donated by local businesses, get crafty in Her Majesty’s Craft Tent making royal crowns, help find her naughty runaway corgis in the corgi hunt and listen to some Royal themed story telling! 
And finally, be entertained by a variety of performances from local clubs and groups whilst sipping tea and eating cakes in our Palace Tea Tent. A BBQ feast will also be prepared.   It’s a party fit for the Queen!


Everyone is welcome. £1, under 12’s free. All profits raised will be used to support initiatives to enhance and extend the provision in school.

The Friends look forward to welcoming you! 

New Jubilee Wall

A colourful mural was painted on a wall at Hook Norton Primary School over the Easter holidays by a team of volunteers led by Fay Jephcott. The work took over 100 hours to complete and captures the lovely north Oxfordshire village of Hook Norton in all its glory

Developed by a fantastic team of adult and children volunteers from across the village, Hook Norton Primary School revealed the new school Jubilee Wall on May Day.

The mural celebrates Hook Norton village, featuring the much loved Hook Norton Brewery horses, St Peter’s Church, the fantastic library, the viaducts and even the Primary School owls; Tawny, Snowy, Barn and Elf.

Over the Easter holidays, 10 volunteers, led by Fay Jephcott, spent a total of nearly 1000 hours cleaning, prepping, designing, painting and varnishing the new wall.  In 2022, Her Majesty The Queen will become the first British Monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee after 70 years of service and so the school community has created the, ‘The Jubilee Wall’ to recognise this extraordinary achievement and to inspire similar dedication, resilience and commitment in our pupils. 

You are all invited to come and admire the wonderful new mural at the School Summer Fair on Saturday, 25th June, 2022 between 3pm and 6pm where you will also have the chance to enjoy delicious afternoon teas, and play Jubilee themed games!

Heartful thanks to all involved: alongside Fay, particular thanks goes to; Caro W, Lyndsay B, Mark J, Kelly H, Claire A, Bill A, Lara C, Klara T, Rachel N, and Mark N for all their hard work.
