Friends of Shipham School (FOSS)

Friends of Shipham School (FOSS) is a voluntary, informal committee of parents that fundraises on behalf of Shipham First School and Pre-School and organises events to bring families of children at the School and the wider community together.


From School Film Club to the Summer Fete and Christmas Wreath workshops, FOSS is the driving force behind projects big and small and is often at the heart of Shipham’s busy social calendar!
