Fundraising / Charity

Every year as a college community we raise money for a variety of Charities and good causes.  We also try to use a fundraising as a method of raising awareness about a range of health-related, social and economic issues that face us all as active citizens.

  • Selling charity merchandise
  • Cake sales at break and lunch times
  • Challenge stalls in the atrium that offer students a chance to challenge themselves, have fun and raise money all at the same time
  • Sport’s competitions and sponsored activities e.g. Five A Side football tournaments, Skip-a-thons, Water Race and 1 mile challenges etc.
  • Individual student sponsorship on charity days e.g. Sponsored silences, dress-up, wear your onsie/PJs to school etc.
  • Performances e.g.s Open Mike Talent shows, Scratch Staff Pantos, DJ, Music and dance performances
  • Soakings and Gungings of staff are always a sure way of raising money!  

The fundraising work is organised and led by the Student Fundraising Group – all students are able to join the group. The aim of the Fundraising group is to raise a minimum of £5000 each year: in most years they have exceeded this target because of the active citizenship and the commitment of the college community – students, staff, parents and wider family members.
