About FOSS

foss_logoWelcome to the Friends of Slimbridge School pages

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.
