Our charities for 2020-21

In 2019-20 students and staff raised £10 491

Students were involved through the school council in nominating and selecting a range of charities for the school to support. Through the charity representatives in each form and the school council,  students chose a range of local and international causes aimed at children and adults. Some events are special to us, others would be impossible to not be involved with.
