It's nearly time for Charities Week!

Monday 5 to Friday 9 December 2016

Our Senior Student Team have been busy putting the final touches on plans for Charities Week next week!

Parents will have received a letter about events and to thanking you in advance for all your support too.

This year's three charities chosen by our students are:

In Charley's Memory

Daughters of Eve


On Friday 9 December 2016 there will be a non-uniform day (mufti) for all students.

Lower School students do not wear uniform and the Sixth Form get to wear fancy dress for the day.

Students are asked to pay 2 pounds each for this special treat that will go towards the fun fundraising!

Thank you once again for your support for what we know will be a wonderful week of entertainment for a good cause!
