Friends at Bilton
FAB is a committee established in 1999 as an informal, voluntary organisation made up of parents from all year groups across the school. We are here to help bring people together and build those friendships that we know will last for many years to come. Along the way, we look to raise money in support of the School and various charities.
As someone who is part of the BG community, we would love for you to get involved: there’s no ‘sign-up’ process, please come along to one of our meetings, either at the School or online.
FAB will meet twice a term on a Saturday morning at the School with an interim online meeting on a Wednesday evening. We also aim to hold a social style meeting once a term. Your attendance at any of these is encouraged and does not commit you to anything: please do come along, listen, offer advice and make a decision to get involved further.
The events organised by FAB have raised funds for outdoor learning spaces, events for the children, professional theatre lighting, and many other wonderful things over the years. It doesn’t matter how much or how little time you have to offer, FAB welcomes each and every parent’s participation.
There are some key FAB events that happen every year, such as the upper school Christmas ball, the middle & juniors school disco, the pre-prep Easter eggstravaganza, and the family Christmas Fayre. As well as these, we also like to organise smaller events which may tie into a particular celebration or just for fun!
Parents across the school play an important role in school life, and there are many opportunities to be involved, or just to enjoy the social network that being a parent at Bilton Grange brings.
We would love to hear your opinions and ideas, as we are keen to make our efforts as inclusive as possible across the BG community and hope to kick start a fantastic year ahead.
