Charity Fundraising

Each house has a chosen charity which they raise money for throughout the year.

In addition to the House Charities, the school annually supports many local and national causes. These include Sport Relief, Comic Relief, BBC Children in Need, Poverty Action Week, Readathon, Remembrance Day and World Book Day. In our 50th Anniversary year, we raised money towards an outdoor canopy for our school.

In the following academic years the total amount was raised for charity:
