The Friends of the BSA were founded by the late Dr. Hector Catling in 1988 as part of the celebration of the School's Centenary. The Friends provide much-needed support for the School in many ways. They host events to involve the wider public in the work of the School through lectures, excursions, visits to museums and other activities. Their constant fund raising efforts have helped the School to build and equip several sections of the Library.

For an annual subscription you will be invited to a range of events and lectures especially organised for the Friends.
