Charity is foundational to our ethos and is taken up practically with vigour and enthusiasm at Reading Senior (formerly Stoke Poges) Campus.
Students welcome the challenge of being actively involved in raising many thousands of pounds for such as RNLI, air ambulance services, Great Ormond Street Hospital, British Heart Foundation and Guide Dogs for the Blind, to name but a few. Initiatives such as walkathons, charity bag collections and jumble sales are taken up seriously by students during school hours and in their own time.
‘Pupils contribute to the wider community through fundraising for charities. They organise sponsored events, prepare their own leaflets and posters, and raise substantial funds for charitable organisations.’ (Schools Inspection Report 2016)
Reading Senior Campus, as all OneSchool Campuses, recognise that they are set in communities and are committed to serve the community. All students are given a responsible outlook towards humanity and through their school’s Current Affairs program understanding is enhanced as to events that have ramifications on a local, national and global scale.
Reading Senior Campus (Stoke Poges) managed to raise £2826.88 for charity last academic year.
This was achieved through various events such as Winter Concert, Warriors charity lunch, Raiders brownie bar, Troopers sponsored walk and many other different activities.
The money raised has been split between various charities including: Chiltern Air Ambulance, South Bucks Hospice, Gracewell Care Home, Rapid Relief Team, Teenager Cancer Trust, McMillan Cancer Care, Barnados and RNLI.

We would like to thank all students and families for their generous contributions to these worthy causes.
