Below are the winning raffle numbers and prizes. These are ready to collect from the office until the end of Friday.
Tonight was Tracy Wain’s final event as Chair of FXP. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Tracy personally and on behalf of all of our students and their families for her tireless work in raising funds for our students.
This year, FXP have helped to raise money for 2 drum kits, amps, e-books for DofE, and this is in no small part down to Tracy and her dedicated team.
Tracy will still be helping out, but will be handing over the reins as chair.
Thank you Tracy for everything you have done!
As always, we would welcome any additional support that parents can give, even if just for one night a year. Please click on the link to FXP’s pages or their Facebook page to see how you could help or send the team a message.
Good morning, we are in need of help! As you may be aware, FXP traditionally support the students in their POL/COL by providing refreshments, etc.
Next week there are 3 events, (Tue, Wed & Thur), however we are extremely short on volunteers, particularly the Thursday evening.
If we don’t have the support, we can’t support the evening itself. If you can spare any time at all between 5pm-7pm it would be very much appreciated!
Also if anyone would like to donate any baked goods to sell please contact FXP on their Facebook page by clicking here.
We can confirm a closing date of 9am on the 27th APRIL for this competition.
We currently have 134 squares remaining at a cost of £5 a square with all proceeds being used to support the students’ expeditions. If you would like to take part, simply choose a letter A-T and a number 1-10 and send your details/payment in an envelope to the office FAO: FXP.
Top prize is return travel for 4 & car w/cabin to Shetland or Orkney courtesy of Northlink ferries, worth over £700! Other prizes include a suitcase, travel toiletries, Orkney Gin, Whiskey and chocolate. FXP members will be selling squares in the carpark after school once the Easter break has passed as well as at any COL that happen between now and the draw date.
Many thanks as always and please share/spread the word to those who may not be online.
Race night tickets available at both our XP East School COL this evening and our XP School COL at The Point!
Look out for our FXP members who can get you your tickets! £5 each & includes Pie & peas/beans supper, at Diamond Lounge in Doncaster (Over 18’s only please).
Only a couple of days to go!!
Do you have books at home that are still in good condition but no longer needed?
Maybe you updated your bookshelves over Christmas or received some as gifts which you’ve already read?
Don’t leave them to gather dust in your rooms, gift them to us and let our students enjoy and engage with them over and over again!
From now until Easter, #FXP are asking for donations of any books, fact and fiction that are suitable for reading ages of 12+, although we are particularly in need of TEEN/YA material for our pupils in year 9 onwards!
If you have any books that you think will be suitable please bring them to school in a bag marked FAO: FXP and we will gratefully sort them for the library. Any that are deemed too young/too old will be passed on to local children’s hospitals/hospice and charities so that other children throughout Doncaster can also benefit from your kindness as well as some that will be resold at our events to help raise funds for new books that we will donate ourselves on your behalf, thereby creating our own book-cycle.
Don’t forget to share with your family & friends who may be able to help our quest too – your support genuinely does make such a difference!
Our first FUNdraising event this year is on 23rd Feb at The Doncaster Diamond Lounge, for over 18’s only – we are hoping to run a race night with a mini auction and a pie and peas supper. We would like to invite all parents/carers, family, friends and staff so be sure to save the date!
Any help on the night or promoting the event on it’s run up would be extremely well received and we would love to hear from anyone willing to give up some of their free time to help out.
We are also bringing you a Treasure Map competition, with tickets from NorthLink Ferries as a prize!
Further details and tickets for both events will be available soon!
As it is the start of a new term (& a new year) FXP are on the beg again for donations of raffle/auction prizes from local businesses, parents and staff, for this event and others, that we can use to raise funds to help support our students in their expeditions.
Please send anything suitable into the office, clearly marked FAO: FXP, or feel free to message us/comment below if you’d like to get in touch with offers/suggestions or ideas.
Thanks as always and don’t forget our next meeting is at school on Wednesday 24th January at 6pm – new faces always welcome!
Take care & Happy New Year to you all!
Happy 1st of December!
So there are a few COL’s coming up before the Christmas break and, as always, FXP will be on hand to provide your usual refreshments. We will have our Purple Vouchers books available if you’ve not got yours yet, along with some XP Merchandise too – the perfect token gift ideas! We will also be asking parents/carers to vote on what you would like your fundraising to support in school this year!
If you would like to volunteer an hour or so to help out on one of the nights or would like to donate any cakes/bakes, please let us know! Any help is always very much appreciated.
Many thanks & we look forward to seeing you all soon.

We’d like to take a moment to quickly thank everyone who came along to our first ‘Family Quiz Night’, a couple of weeks ago – a great evening was had, with 15 teams taking part and a fantastic buffet provided. We’ve had some lovely feedback with requests to repeat the event next year and a wonderful £150 raised for FXP Funds! We’re so pleased that everyone enjoyed themselves. Special thanks to our members and Duke of Edinburgh students who gave up their Friday night, to help serve our guests and lovely to see so many staff participating too.
Our next meeting for your records is 15th November – 6pm at the school. New members and fundraising suggestions welcome.
Thanks as always for your continued support, look forward to seeing you on the 10th!
