Friends of Wood Bank?

The Friends of Wood Bank charity was formed in May 2007 by a group of staff and parents.  Wood Bank School is a primary special school based in Luddenden, Halifax. The children who attend Wood Bank have a wide range of Special Educational Needs.  These include severe and complex learning difficulties, physical disabilities, Autism, challenging behaviours, sensory impairment (including children who are hearing and visually impaired), communication difficulties and life limiting medical conditions.  


Who are the Committee Members?

Chair - Mrs K Lockett

Secretary - Mrs A Smith

Treasurer - Mrs B Bell

Member - Mrs T Woodrup

Member - Miss J Andrews 


How do we raise money?

We raise money through organizing events within the school community including our annual Christmas Fair.  We also submit funding bids to external charities, to support in the fundraising of larger projects.

What is our current fundraising focus?

At the moment our fundraising focus is centered on providing a rebound room for our children to be situated in a bespoke building at the bottom of the main playground.

You can help us by encouraging colleagues, friends and family to either donate to the school through the SmartGiving link below or through organising your own fundraising events on behalf of Friends of Wood Bank, for example a sponsored walk or run.
