Friends of Bosbury School (FOBS)
Parents and members of our local community have a key role in our school. They are responsible for raising significant funds, organising events and giving our pupils the opportunites to experience a wide range of additional activities.
Friends of Bosbury School (FOBS) is the team of volunteer parents who schedule, organise and publicise a timetable of fundraising activities and events for our families. Our Summer Fayre is the most fun - and challenging - event the team organises each summer and other regular events include: school children's discos, parents' quiz nights, children's film nights, a spring plant sale, family Bingo evenings and our festive Christmas Fayre.
The 100 Club is also run by FOBS. Every April, family members and friends are able to buy tickets that are entered into the monthly FOBS prize draw - an initiative that raises over £700 each year for our school with a £20 top prize, £10 second prize and two further prizes of £5.
The money raised by FOBS is used to support all of the children who attend Bosbury School through funding the cost of:
- Book bags
- Annual theatre trips
- Playground equipment
- Sports kit
- Musical instruments
Thank you to the current members of FOBS and for all the time they give to our school:
Marianne Bailey - Chairperson
Kate Gatfield-Soloman - Vice Chairperson
Treasurer: Lorna Jessop
100 Club Co-ordinator: Gill Bolton
Other FOBS Members and Helpers: Emma Ferrier, Alex and Matilda Attwood, Laura Symonds, Natasha Downes, Kelly Cummings, Rachael Portman, Samantha Watkins, Pav Fielder, Hayley Boswell
Please let any of the team know if you have the time or expertise to help them.

Thanks to FOBS and all of the parents who have spent money at Bosbury School events, we now have our own brand new defibrillator in the school office which can be used on both children and adults.
