What we do ...
In school we try to make our students aware of things outside of school and give you opportunities to support charities which either have a link with our students or staff for whatever reason, or those who support the local or national community.
See below for our House Charities for this year.
Our House Charities for this year
Breamore House is supporting Children's Chance a Salisbury charity that aims to give children and young people whose families are going through hard times, or who come from disadvantaged backgrounds, the opportunity to do things that would otherwise be denied them, and which can so often be taken for granted.
Clarendon House is supporting Simon Says - Simon Stanley was a 37 year old teacher from Southampton when he died from cancer. His wife Sally found there was no bereavement support locally for their two small children. Their experiences have led to the establishment of “Simon Says” as a registered charity.
Longford House is supporting The Youth Adventure Trust has been helping young people in Wiltshire and Swindon fulfil their potential, build resilience and lead positive lives in the future since 1992.
Our outdoor adventure based Youth Adventure Programme enables young people to challenge themselves, experience success, grow in confidence and develop skills that will last a lifetime.
Pembroke House is supporting Downton4Family This was founded when a few people who were experienced in being part of families as well as fostering, counselling and pastoral care came together and talked about how difficult all this can often be. We developed a mission to support families when they are having a difficult time to reduce the risk of family breakdown or the need to involve formal agencies. Or to put it simply, to help families help themselves.
Radnor House is supporting Young Lives V Cancer. We are the charity that helps children and young people (0-25) and their families find the strength to face whatever cancer throws at them.
Wick House is supportng The Firefighters' Charity- We exist to help all serving and retired members of the UK's fire family to live healthier and happier
