Friends of Osborne School

FOS is a small committed group made up of parents, staff, Governors and volunteers, who all work hard to give our students the ‘Little Extra’s’.

Our primary aim is fundraising; however, the group also supports parents and carers by giving opportunities for parents to meet and share information and for mutual support. We also act as a consultative body for the school in supporting its development.

We meet once a month to discuss our next fundraising projects and we also attend the School Council meetings.

We are always looking for new volunteers who have fresh ideas and can bring new skills to our team. You don’t have to sit on a committee or have any previous experience, just a willingness to help out with whatever takes your fancy!

Our next meeting will be held on Friday 11 May from 1.00pm until 3.00pm.  It will take place in the Training Room at school.  Do please join us.  It is a chance to meet other parents and get involved in school events.  There is always a good cup of tea or coffee on offer and quite often cake and biscuits!!

We are also holding a Summer Fayre Planning Meeting at the Jolly Farmer pub (just over the bridge from the school) on Tuesday 22 May from 7.00pm until 9.00pm.  We would love to have a few more people join us and you are welcome to bring your young person with you.  The meeting is quite informal and with the pub serving food you can make an evening of it.


My son Thomas is in Year 8 and I jumped straight into life at FoS by becoming the new Chairman. I bring 4 years of PTA experience with me from a Primary School I helped with. I am keen to carry on the great work already achieved by Caroline and the team. I plan on being as hands on as possible and already loving life at Osborne. You can find me outside school every morning and afternoon picking Thomas up. Feel free to have a chat if you have any ideas or would like to offer support. You can also email me anytime or give your name and contact details to the School.

Many Thanks
