The Sixth Form is a very outward looking and sympathetic body of students who support charities wholeheartedly. We do this in a variety of ways from simply holding out buckets at school events, asking parents for their support, to actually putting ourselves on the line and doing something big or small to help raise money. Every year the whole of the Sixth Form vote to support one national and one international charity.
Some of our charity events are long term, we have supported Crisis at Christmas for at least ten years, raising thousands of pounds. We hold termly collections of food and toiletries for Camden Foodbank, supporting adults and children in food poverty. In the past year, more than one million children received emergency food parcels from foodbanks. This is the first time the figure has reached over one million.
Last year our students raised money through a talent show, bake sales and other innovative initiatives, so we were able to donate respectively to 'End FGM' and 'Runnymede Trust'. Every autumn the Sixth Form supports the whole school in raising money for Breast Cancer Now by having a ‘Pink Day’ where there are competitions, cake sales, the ‘Pink Police’ and of course we all dress in pink!
