Friends of Oxford Spires Academy (FOSA)

Friends of Oxford Spires Academy, known as FOSA, is an active parents and friends association who organise activities, provide catering for school events and fundraise for additional equipment to enhance pupils’ school experience. We also act as a link between school and parents; running events to welcome parents of Year 7 pupils in November, “Coffee & Cake Welcome Meeting” sessions, etc.



In 2016/17, we decided to raise funds for outdoor table tennis tables and by May had enough funds for our first one, plus bats and balls. We will be continuing to fundraise for more during the 2017/18 academic year.

One of the main ways we raise funds is through selling refreshments at events such as open evening/morning in October, House Drama competition in November and the pantomime performance in December. Volunteers are always welcome! Events are discussed at meetings and rotas organised via the mailing list (email to join).



Meetings are listed on the school home page but we encourage you to join our mailing list  to find out more about what we do, receive minutes of meetings, hear about plans and opportunities. Meetings last no more than an hour. Agendas will be sent to the mailing list.
