Charity Support and Volunteering

Throughout the year, we support a wide range of charities as a School. Often we respond to a charity that has a particular significance to us as a school and at other times we respond to disasters or issues which are occurring at a national or global level.

In the past, we have supported, for example, Diabetes UK, Brian House Children’s Hospice – Trinity Hospice, the Red Cross, ┬áRed Nose Day and the Nepal earthquake disaster.

We are also keen to connect with our local community and a significant number of students and staff give their time generously as volunteers, sometimes on a one off basis such as the annual Beach Clean, but more often on a regular basis, for example volunteering in a charity shop or in a local drop-in centre.
