Charity is foundational to our ethos and is taken up practically with vigour and enthusiasm at 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.’
