Welcome to FoBFS

The Friends of Bristol Free School (FoBFS) is a charitable organisation, consisting of 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 easily funded through the school budget.

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 BBQ but we also support school music, drama and sports events as well as holding social events such as quiz nights.

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 request for help before each event to ask for volunteers. To receive these e-mails just contact the FoBFS email here:
