Friends of Marlborough


Friends of Marlborough (FOM) began in 2013 when a dedicated group of staff joined together to raise funds to support school. This means we organise different events throughout the year which both raise money and give people in the school community the opportunity to get together and have a good time.


The main aim of FOM is:

  • to promote the partnership between home and school,
  • to promote fun in the school environment,
  • to encourage parental involvement,
  • to work in partnership with local businesses,
  • to support charity in school,
  • to be a friend to Marlborough.


Some of the regular events are shown below but we are always open to suggestions for new ideas. Please contact the school office if you would like to help us in any way.


We look forward to seeing you at our events.


Marlborough Mela (usually in the autumn term)

In the past the Mela has raised much needed funds to buy new furniture and equipment for the outdoor environment.

This year’s Mela raised a staggering £1238.50 which went towards the cost of coaches to take the whole school to the MAC (Midlands Art Centre Theatre) to watch a production of Thumbelina.

Family Day’s out (usually in the summer term)

Mrs Colbeck (Deputy Head Teacher) working with FOM organise wonderful Family Trips to seaside towns for whole day trips. In the past we have visited Weston, Porthcawl, Southport, Breen and Blackpool. These trips are extremely popular and always a tremendous success.
