Friends of Borrow Wood

Friends of Borrow Wood School (FOBWS) is Borrow Wood School's PTA. We are a group of volunteers that meet every half term to arrange events to raise money and build community at the school, you don't have to be a parent or teacher - grandparents, child minders or friends are all welcome! 


Whether you can attend every meeting, could volunteer at an event or have links with local businesses that could support us -  we would love to hear from you, please contact us via the school office if you are interested in getting involved. 

Registered Charity number: 1026897


Thank You!

We would like to say a BIG thank you to everyone that supported our events this year.  We hope you enjoyed it as much as we did!


Together we raised a massive £4200!  The money we raise helps provide the school with the ‘extras’ that make the children’s learning experience more fulfilling and exciting.


This year we have been able to buy a selection of musical instruments for pupils to use in the music room and provided a donation to purchase new library books. We have also been able to make a contribution towards the Year 6 leavers party and bought ice pops for every pupil to enjoy at the end of term.
