As a school, we are keen to support both national and local charities. We undertake a range of events throughout the year to raise money for chosen charities.
Silence to remember
On the 26th March 2021 the school held a minute’s silence to remember the victims of the Covid pandemic as part of the national reflection effort organised by the Marie Curie Charity, and backed by the Prime Minister and other political leaders to mark the anniversary of lockdown measures being introduced. We felt it was important to observe the minute’s silence as a community to allow students to reflect on the impact the virus has had on our community, their lives and the country as a whole. Many of our local community have been impacted by Covid 19 and unfortunately many of us have felt the loss of a loved one due to the pandemic. This silence allowed us to show our respect as a school community to those we have lost, as well as reflect on the challenging year that they have experienced.
Red Nose Day in Support of Comic Relief
As a school we are proud to support a range of charities that do valuable work both in our local community and worldwide. On Friday 19th March, the school took part in a non-uniform day in support of Red Nose Day for the charity Comic Relief. The students donated money to wear their own clothes for the day and many also purchased red noses to support the cause. The canteen also sold a range of loaded doughnuts on the day which were extremely popular with students and staff alike, and all profit from the sale of these went to the charity. It was a successful day and we raised a total of £1,225.39 for Comic Relief.
We also have a community student leadership group formed from students across all year groups who meet regularly to work on supporting initiatives in the local community. Please see our community page for more details.
