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 Kate Gatfield-Soloman
Treasurer: Lorna Jessop
100 Club Co-ordinator: Gill Bolton
Other FOBS Members and Helpers: Emma Ferrier, Matilda Attwood, Laura Symonds, Natasha Downes, Kelly Cummings
Please let any of the team know if you have the time or expertise to help them.

Gill Bolton - 100 Club Co-ordinator
A huge thank you to everyone who helped to make the two recent January film nights such a great success - the children absolutely loved the treat of popcorn and a drink after school while watching the adventures of Gru and the Minions as well as Greg, Rowley and family on the big screen!
Don't forget that the next FOBS cake sale will take place after school on Wednesday 14th February, so get ready to bake some tasty Valentine's Day treats to help raise funds for school! We will also be having a special raffle this time around with the prize of an amazing luxury cake kindly made by the very talented Mrs. Boswell of Boo & Roo Bakes!
