Y11 Prom Transport News

If you (or someone you know) still need to transport your pride and joy (and their friends) to the prom in style, you’re invited to the next meet of Locks Heath Classic Car Club on Thursday 11th May at Locks Heath Centre from 7.30 to 9.00 pm.  They will have lots of cars on display for you to view.  If you see one you like, ask if it’s still available to book for prom night.  For a very reasonable flat fee, they will transport your son or daughter and their friends to the prom in style and all the monies raised are donated to charity – FOBS will receive 50% of all the money raised.

Please visit their website at and click on the April 2017 Meeting in the Recent Posts section to see what sort of vehicles will be on offer. They have modern classics like Aston Martins, vintage classics and also a few quirky ones too – something for everyone!

Memorial Garden for Mr Sukram

On behalf of FOBS members, the committee has agreed to fund the installation of a permanent plaque and other improvements to the memorial garden dedicated to Mr Sukram (Ainslie House). This will include replacing the wooden puzzle boards with permanent metal versions and a brass plaque mounted on a solid wooden base. The work should be completed before the end of the school year and you will be able to see the finished result in the garden behind the main reception block, where the planting scheme undertaken last year is now starting to mature and develop.

This has only been possible thanks to your continued donations and support. Remember that if you are unable to attend any of our events, you can donate by standing order or through Tucasi (FOBS should appear in the Trips and Events section – if you can’t see us, please e-mail We are actively seeking other projects to support and have been working to simplify the application process for subject leaders.  Updates will be provided on this page when we have news to report.
