  • Charities

    Supporting charities is a way which the students can practically demonstrate their concern for those around them and therefore plays an intrinsic part of the daily life of the school with individuals, small group of students and tutor groups regularly holding events to raise awareness and funds.

    As a community the school will regularly provide gifts at whole school masses to HARP,
    a local charity supporting the homeless.

    The school supports the work of CAFOD year on year with collections of money at different events.

    In 2018/19,  the school raised £5,357.30 for a range of charities, and in 2019/20 raised £3,061.12. The main charities to benefit were:

    • CAFOD
    • Lady McAdden Breast Screening Trust
    • MacMillan Cancer Support
    • Little Haven Hospice
    • British Heart Foundation
    • Days for Girls
    • Commonwealth Girls education Fund
    • Compassion UK

    CCLEF (Commonwealth Countries League Education Fund)

    'Educate a Girl - Empower a Woman'

    Over the last three years 11M and Mrs Roberts have supported this charity.  The launch of the school's fundraising took place when Ladi Dariya, a beneficiary of the scheme who is now based in the UK, visited the school. 

    The whole school, led by 11M, supports two young women  -  one lives in Swaziland and one in Uganda.  All tutor bases and offices have jars for loose change and, along with other events, so far in excess of £2,500 has been raised.
