Our charities for 2017-18

In 2017-18 students and staff raised a fantastic £15,809

Students were involved through the school council in nominating and selecting a range of charities for the school to support. Through the charity representatives in each form and the school council,  students chose a range of local and international causes aimed at children and adults. Some events are special to us, others would be impossible to not be involved with.

Jeans for GenesGenetic Disorders UK is a registered charity with a vision to improve the lives of individuals and families affected by genetic disorders. It is thought that there are currently more than 6,000 diagnosed disorders and new disorders are being identified every day. It is estimated that 1 in 25 children is affected by a genetic disorder. This means that in the UK, 30,000 babies and children are newly diagnosed each year and more than half a million children and adults are living with a genetic disorder.

Genetic disorders UK aims to be the leading source of information and support for both those affected by a genetic disorder, and the charities and patient groups that support them, by bringing together everyone’s combined experience in a place it can be shared.
