Our PTA (FOSSP)
Where the fun starts for the whole family.
FOSSP (Friends of Sarum St. Paul's School) is a committee made up of parents and teachers, who meet regularly to organise activities around the school. A team of people who have a genuine passion for creating memorable events which raise funds for the school. Look out in the Newsletter and on the notice boards for details of the many FOSSP events.
