About FOSS

foss_logoWelcome to the Friends of Slimbridge School pages

The Friends of Slimbridge School Annual General Meeting will take place on Thursday 2nd October straight after school. We aim to meet in the Outdoor Classroom weather depending, alternatively we will find an empty indoor classroom. Children welcome!

We would love as many people as possible to attend to briefly hear about the work FoSS has done over the last year and vote in the new committee members.

Due to new commitments the current committee are standing down this year so we are looking looking to appoint a whole new group to come in with some lovely fresh ideas for fundraising, as well as running the events that have become well established across the years.

We will be appointing a Chairperson, Secretary, & Treasurer. A Vice Chairperson would also be very valuable to the team. We also would like lots of general committee members who would be able to offer a bit of time to volunteer throughout the year at different events or fundraisers. The meeting will be finished by 4 at the latest.

Please let us know if you are considering any of these roles, we’d be happy to answer any questions you may have.

Being a part of FoSS, no matter how small is a really rewarding job. We raise essential funds as well as creating a lovely community with all the families that attend Slimbridge School.

See you there for a cup of tea.

Current FoSS Committee – Jess Andrewartha, Alison-Napier Ford, Sarah Carter, Felicity Chilton.


FOSS is a group of parents whose primary aim is to raise funds for the school and provide a range of fun extracurricular activities and events for pupils and their families.

In a small school the role of FOSS is very important and we rely hugely on the support and generosity of parents and families. We are always keen to recruit new members who can offer their time and skills. If you are interested or would like to chat about what we do please contact us.
