Unfortunately, due to the Coronavirus Restrictions some of our normal fundraising activities are temporarily suspended.

As a school we have agreed to support three non-uniform (mufti) days a year and cake stalls on a Friday morning.   Our students are very keen to raise funds for a wide range of charities.    To ensure all are able to have their charities represented, our Senior Prefects lead a School Council meeting in July of each year to discuss which charities to support.  The School Council is made up of one representative from each tutor group across the whole school.  At this meeting, they consider which charities to support plus any requests from students for new charities.   During the meeting the Student Council decided whom they wish to support: This is a fully democratic process with students deciding the charities to support.  No members of staff are involved in the decision.  

Charities typically supported are:-

  • Somerset Air Ambulance
  • MacMillan Cancer Support
  • School in a Bag
  • Children in Need
  • Sport Relief (Bi-Annually)
  • Comic Relief
  • Save the Children

Christmas Jumpers - Save the Children

From the 11th December students can wear a Christmas jumper from this date till the end of term in aid of 'Save the Children'.  Jumpers must be Christmas jumpers and not just branded (eg a red adidas jumper).

The Academy this year has been a challenging year and some families may be experiencing financial difficulties. Voluntary donations can be made on the meet and greet gate where HoY's will have a collection bucket or through the red letter box in front of school.
