Charitable work

We are always keen to help our pupils raise funds for charities which are dear to them and it was wonderful to be able to congratulate four children on their superb efforts.

  • Scarlett raised £215 by donating her hair to the Little Princess Trust
  • Liv took part in a 6km Wolf Run, tackling mud, water and scramble nets to raise £400 for the National Autism Society
  • Eddie cycled 15 miles and ran 2 miles to Worcester Sixways Stadium and raised £2600 for St Richard’s Hospice
  • You may remember Leo’s collaboration with Waitrose to combat food poverty.  Waitrose have been in touch to tell him that so far he has helped to raise over £1.6 million for food banks across the country through his ‘donate at the till’ idea.  This is an astonishing achievement.  Well done Leo.
