Charity Work and Volunteering
This is an important part of the Sixth Form experience and we are proud of our fundraising record. Each year the Sixth Form groups select charities to support. Various activities take place throughout the year, including concerts, sponsored walks, non-uniform days and many other events! This provides both a challenge and an enjoyable experience for all involved.
Duke of Edinburgh Scheme, with many progressing onto the Gold Award.
Volunteering – such as Millennium Volunteers who recognise and accredit a wide range of voluntary work. Other volunteering includes supporting lower school and being a reading tutor. Students can also arrange some community work experience, for example, helping out in a local primary school or charity shop.
Students take part in sports and games through regular timetabled slots and also strong extracurricular opportunities.
Performing Arts events and performances have a strong tradition in Bridgnorth which is well known for excellence in the arts. Most subject areas arrange for enrichment activities and trips for students.
Our students have participated in a residential cultural trip to London, Clothes Show Live, a Geography and Geology trip, Wimbledon, Geology trip to Wales and visits to local universities. This list is by no means exhaustive.
Each year our students take part in the Holocaust educational Trust's Lessons from Auschwitz project. The project aims to increase knowledge and understanding of the Holocaust for young people. Students visit the former Nazi concentration camp of Auschwitz-Birkenau which includes half-day seminars.
Student Organised events
Students organise charity and social events for themselves. Recent events included a number of events such as a car wash, bake sale and henna tattooing for charities such as Rupert’s Revenge and the Alzheimer’s Society.
