Charities

Every year the school supports three charities: one local, one national and one international.  The pupils choose the charities they would like to support and will then embark on a variety of fundraising challenges, with their houses, throughout the year.  In recent years charitable events have included a whole school “Bake-Off” which resulted in the publication of a cookery book, a “24 hour Musicathon” and a sponsored fun run.  Charitable giving is at the heart of the school and organisations are invited to the school on a regular basis to talk to the pupils.

Recent charities supported have included:

  • Good Samaritan Fund of Haiti
  • Suffolk Animal Rescue
  • Rays of Sunshine
  • East Anglian Children’s Hospice
  • St Elizabeth Hospice
  • Facing the World
  • Meningitis Research Foundation

During lockdown, the charities supported were ICENI, Dementia UK and Rainforest Trust UK. Despite the restrictions the pupils raised an amazing £6,918  which meant that each charity was given £2,306. With good humour and great enthusiasm, pupils raised money in a variety of ways including the Year 8 sponsored ‘virtual walk’ to the Ardeche!

For 2021/22, our charities are the Suffolk Young People’s Health Project (local), Barnado’s (national) and Save the Rhino (international).
