Friends of Battle Abbey School

The FOBAS Committee is a group of parents from the Nursery, Prep and Senior School who meet once or twice per term, and help organise a variety of fundraising and social events at both the Senior and Prep School.  The money raised during these events is used to fund items and projects that do not fall under existing educational or facilities budgets, and benefit current children at the Nursery, Prep and/or Senior School.

Projects that were supported during the 2018-19 academic year include:

  • 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
  • Science Ambassadors for the Prep School
  • STEM LEGO Robots for the Prep School
  • Royal Wedding Coins for the Prep School
  • Organ Restoration Appeal
