The Association of Friends is a group of parents and teachers who meet on a monthly basis during term time and put on a number of very enjoyable fundraising events throughout the academic year. These events include Bonfire Night Fireworks, a Christmas Fayre, Carols & Fizz and a Summer Fayre.
With the support of the Blue Coat School community, The Friends raise funds to support and enhance the children’s school life. Past projects have included stage lighting for the school hall, playground equipment, a Christmas pantomime and the outdoor classrooms.
In addition to raising funds, The Friends work tirelessly to create opportunities for social events and to bring the BCS family together whenever possible. Popular activities have been the Headmaster’s XI versus the Dads at Harborne Cricket Club and a Golfing Day at Edgbaston Golf Club.
The Association of Friends, would always love to welcome new members and volunteers. If parents are unable to join the committee and meet on a regular basis, they are still more than welcome to volunteer for individual events. To express an interest or to find out more please email the Chair of Friends, Andrew Hodge: firstname.lastname@example.org.
A second hand uniform shop is also run by The Friends and is open on the last Friday of each month. Please contact Jules Dowell-Lee: email@example.com.
