Friends of Battle Abbey School

The FOBAS Committee is a group of parents from Nursery, Prep and Senior School; they meet once or twice per term and help organise a variety of events held at Battle Abbey School for parents, staff and friends.  The money raised during these events is used to fund items that do not fall under existing educational or facilities budgets and promise to enhance the school experience, helping to improve educational or social outcomes for children in the school.

  • The STEAM Engineering Hub
  • Games & PS4 for the Boarding Houses
  • French Theatre for MFL Department
  • Make Up & Staging Equipment for the Drama Department
  • Additional Tents & Equipment for Duke of Edinburgh Expeditions
