Posted 06/03/2021101. Our First Founder Funder: Can you join them?
Just before half-term we took ownership of our permanent site. We leave our temporary premises with fond memories, as well as frustrating ones, but with a real sense of excitement about boys – finally – walking through the gates of our home. The building is exceptional. And we want it to become a real local landmark. To this end, I hope local residents and businesses will want to get involved in equipping the building so it not only provides an outstanding educational environment for our boys, but also all the facilities from which local community groups, sports clubs and charities can benefit out of school hours. FBS will never forget its roots – the local parents, teachers and residents who championed our cause to create a new boys’ secondary school for Fulham. It took their belief and a ‘can do’ culture to get us where we are today. We now need the support of our community again, to make the ‘school’ building a vibrant local hub. I hope many will want to contribute and, today, I am delighted to announce our first ‘founder funder’ of the school. The Bender Family Trust have kindly agreed to sponsor the bleacher seating in our sports hall (which will now be named Ray’s Hall) at a cost of £70,000.
