The Friends of Brockholes (FoBs)

Welcome to our FoBs page! We are a registered charity, run by parents of Brockholes children, who organise events to raise money for Brockholes School. The money is spent on new equipment, sports items, team kits and facilities for all the children to enjoy.

We are currently fundraising to replace all the interactive whiteboards in the school, and purchase a new trolley full of laptops.

Last year we also organised a new football kit and new sports t-shirts for the children to wear when representing the school.


FoBs is run by a committee of volunteers, supported by the rest of the members. The current committee are:

Chair: Tricia Sykes

Vice-chair: Kris Parrish

Treasurer: Rachael Tyas-Broadbent

Secretary: Hannah Dunn


Would you like to get involved? There are many different ways you can help us:

  • Come to the meetings – we’d love to hear your ideas for making our events even more fantastic!
  • Offer to help – every event needs people to set up, donate raffle prizes, run stalls and pack away afterwards.
  • Support us – buy raffle tickets, come to the fairs and the fundraising events. You’ll be helping the school, having fun, and might even pick up a prize or two.
  • Follow us – We have a Facebook group and a twitter account where we keep everyone up to date with what is going on.


Watch out for FoBs updates on Headlines, through our termly newsletter, or on social media.

The Friends of Brockholes School exists to promote goodwill and understanding between parents, teachers and children.  It is an active organisation, which in addition to organising a number of enjoyable social events, raises a lot of money to provide goods and services the school could not afford in any other way.

Some of our recent purchases are:
o Staging
o Laptop trolley

FOBS meetings are held once or twice a term to discuss ideas, priorities and plan events (activities are provided for children during these meetings so please bring them along). Notice of the meetings is posted in “Headlines” and information can also be found on the notice board outside school.

As stated, any parent with a child attending the school is able to join FOBS.   We are always looking for new people to join the team, bringing with them fresh ideas and perspectives.
