Charitable activities are a huge part of school life, with a flourishing number of members at any one-time, the entire school are encouraged to be involved in awareness campaigns and fundraising activities.
In the Autumn Term of Lower Sixth students are invited to apply to be a part of the Sixth Form Charity Projects. These students will go on to gain invaluable and transferable skills in leadership and organisation.
Additionally, they become active members of the school community, willing to use assemblies as an opportunity to educate their fellow students on topical issues and campaigns the school should be aware of. Students will work closely with our charity partners, organise school events, support awareness among the school community about key issues, respond to local and national campaigns for support and collections, and more.
Sixth Form Charitable Opportunities include:
A group of 16 Sixth Form students regularly meet with the young carers from No Limits Southampton and run an activity camp for them in the Summer.
Portsmouth Down Syndrome Association
A group of 20 Sixth Form students regularly meet with members of the PDSA. They run fun events and hold series of activity days over the Summer holidays.
