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.’ (Schools Inspection Report 2016)
Stoke Poges Campus, as all Focus schools, 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.
