Form Charity

Aims

We believe that it is fundamentally important to the development of our pupils as individuals and our effectiveness as a School that we continue to strive to make a positive impact on the world around us.

Form Charity supports four charity partners each year, all chosen democratically by our pupils.

Activities

Over £20,000 is raised each year by boys and staff through a wide range of activities which are either year group events organised by the boys or whole School events organised by the Charity Co-ordinators. We run fundraising events throughout the year including cake sales, penalty shootouts and mufti days. We also occasionally run emergency collections outside the normal Form Charity calendar – such as our crisis appeal for toothbrushes and toothpaste to send to refugees arriving in Eastern Europe in September 2015.
