Friends of Barham School (FOBS)

The 'Friends of Barham School' (formerly known as the PTA) plays an important role in the school. It exists to raise funds to support the children of Barham school with resources and equipment which are not funded by the state. Much of the money raised goes towards the upkeep of the swimming pool which Barham is lucky enough to have but in the last year, the Friends have also helped with the cost of coaches for school trips and funded the Year 6 books for the Leavers' Service. The Friends have organised various events in the past, including Wine & Wisdom evenings, school discos, Christmas Fayres,  Summer Fetes, concerts, the much-loved 'Daffodil Tea' and refreshments at various school events such as the production and sports day.

The Friends meet to discuss future events at least once a term and always welcome new faces. Without the support of parents, the Friends events would not be successful. We are therefore very grateful to all parents who give their voluntary help and support. 

 You can contact the Friends by email.
