'We need to reach out to the world outside our gates'. Mr Pinnington
A key aspect of our Mission is to live in an inclusive society. Each year we invite our community to suggest charities for us to support. We then organise events through the year to raise awareness of the work that each charity does and to raise funds.
Our major event is our Sponsored Walk. The entire school walk from school down to Whitlingham Country Park and back. This is also an opportunity to all come together as one community.
Each of our Houses has been given 2 charities to support in this year's Sponsored Walk.
We celebrate the start of Advent each year with a market. Students create and sell crafts and delicious treats to eat. We also have games and live music. The money raised is given to CAFOD. This year we raised £450 to buy 3 cows for farmers in Nicuragua. They are struggling with the effects of extreme whether due to climate change. The cows not only produce food and milk for the families. Extra milk can be sold at market. Cow manure helps crops to thrive. Calves are given to other families to help support them.
