Friends of Bristol Free School


The Friends of Bristol Free School (FoBFS) is a group of active parents, carers and teachers who fund raise on behalf of the school, typically by supporting school and social events. Our core aim is to raise money to be spent on equipment and experiences for students across all year groups, which cannot be funded through the school budget.

How you can help

The easiest way to help is to attend school and social events and bring along family and friends! Our big event of the year is the summer barbeque (19 July this year) but we also support school music, drama and sports events as well as holding social events such as quiz nights and fun runs.

Another easy way to help is by using easyfundraising when you shop online, details are available on our facebook page.

You can also assist by volunteering at events. Even if you only have an hour or so to spare this can really help. There’s always someone involved who knows what to do and can show you the ropes. We send out e-mails before each event to ask for volunteers. To receive these e-mails just drop an e-mail to

If you feel you’d like to be more involved you can opt to join the committee. We agree committee members at our annual AGM (held in October). Everyone is welcome to attend the AGM and it’s a great way to hear about what we do. Attending the AGM doesn’t mean you have to join the committee, you can simply come along to find out more.


Last year we had our most successful year of fundraising! We raised over £5700. The process of allocating these funds is underway.

This is of course in addition to the experiences and equipment provided from last years’ funds. These include…

A music mixing desk to benefit all A-Level and GCSE students and after school clubs

Support to the Young Enterprise Programme which develops employability skills

Support to the Duke of Edinburgh Programme

Support to the training of Wellbeing Ambassadors

Support to All-Stars thank you trips for those students who excel in school

Support to training and equipment for an SEN climbing club

A table tennis table and further equipment for the Sixth Form courtyard to complement the pool table from the year before
