Community and Charity

We encourage our children to think about others and to be responsible members of our local community and society at large. There are regular opportunities for the Pre-Prep to be involved in fundraising and local community events over the course of the year and particularly at seasonal times. Some of these include:

  • Harvest Festival – where children collect fruit and vegetables from our allotment and sell these via an honesty box, with the proceeds and donations of unperishable food being distributed to those in need.
  • Christmas initiatives such as Mary’s Meals Backpack Project, the Shoebox Appeal, TeddyAid, and Princess Alice Hospice’s Santa Run.
  • An annual Easter Bonnet parade cake sale that is managed by our PP3 (Year 3) pupils and sells cakes baked by all our Pre-Prep pupils.
  • A summer Community Tea that welcomes grandparents and local elderly to join the Pre-Prep for tea and cakes, to listen to our choir sing, and to chat to our pupils.

All year-round, children are encouraged to donate old toys, books, clothing and other belongings, organise collections and cake sales and take part in sponsored activities. Our Pre-Prep choir and instrumentalists are also invited to perform at local community centres or at local fundraising events.

There are also many opportunities for our Pre-Prep children to take part in fundraising activities that involve the whole School. Examples of these are:
