Our Charity

The 10 school have developed links with Bluebell Wood Children`s hospice looking at a range of ways to support and raise funds throughout the academic year.

Bluebell Wood is a home from home for families facing the toughest of times, with a comfy lounge and beautiful gardens. They are always cooking up mouth-watering meals and tasty treats in the kitchen for families. There is also plenty of fun activities for children to try, including soft play, arts and crafts, music therapy and much more.

They believe that every family deserves to make magical memories with their child, whether they have years, months, weeks or days together.

This charity work will be overseen by Miss Winterburn but very much led by the students. The Year 10 Lead Ambassadors have designed a programme of fundraising events that they are busy organising.
