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 annual AGM will be held at school on 16th October 6-7.30pm. All are welcome and refreshments will be provided. If you would like to attend or be considered for an officers position please email Barry Barnett on or call on 07543759381. Alternatively leave a message for Barry at the school office. So if you are interested in joining us please contact reception for more details.The committee look forward to seeing lots of you on the night to help us continue to help our wonderful students and staff
Our most pressing need is for a Treasurer. if you feel you could fill this role, or know someone that could, please let us know or come along to the meeting. This is imperative as without a Treasurer FoS cannot continue to operate.


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
