Each year a committee of students in Year 12 lead a three-day programme of charitable events to raise money for good causes, alongside various other fundraisers across the year.
Students are invited to write letters of application to the Head of Year in September of Year 12, and following a rigorous selection process, a Fundraising Committee is appointed to organise and lead the school’s fundraising efforts for the rest of term, culminating in the last week of December.
Congratulations go to our newly appointed Charity and Events Committee of Ella, Samah, Anna, Joseph and Abigail. This year our chosen charities are Great Ormond Street Hospital and Plan UK.
Events organised for our Charity Week in December 2019 included a quiz night, a Christmas movie fundraiser and a staff vs students football match. There were also be numerous fundraising activities throughout the school day in which the entire school participated.
The week affords our students a valuable opportunity to forge professional relations with members of staff and members of the local community, while acquiring valuable transferable skills in performing charitable endeavours.
School trips planned for 2019-20 included a Philosophy trip to Rome, theatre trips to London, and a Holocaust Educational Trip remembrance project at Auschwitz in Poland.
