Charities and Community Service

In both Junior and Senior School pupils help to select a number of local and international charities for whom they raise funds and awareness. Visiting speakers are invited to assemblies. Charity sponsored events are held such as running, swimming and canoeing events, musical concerts and sporting staff v pupil challenges. Termly mufti days, cake sales and special events raise money for about a dozen charities each year.

In the Senior School, time is allocated each week for pupils to pursue an aspect of our Community Service programme, by taking part in activities such as the Duke of Edinburgh award scheme. These activities encourage the development of interpersonal and leadership skills as well as fostering a sense of personal responsibility.

Older pupils contribute positively in the local community, visiting elderly people living on their own and assisting local charities and schools.
