As we face these unprecedented circumstances, we would like to celebrate our students and staff who have gone above and beyond to support others in the local community.

Alfie Dixon, who recently appeared on the local news, has distributed over 2,000 parcels containing colouring books and sweets to children in the local area, all with his own pocket money!

Chloe Hockaday created a wonderful rainbow cake inspired by the NHS to show her support for their hard work and Katy Cooper took part in the 'burpee challenge' alongside her brother to raise money for NHS charities, raising over £1,400! 

One of our Year 11 boys, who wishes to remain anonymous, has shown kindness to others by delivering food to those in the area who cannot leave their homes.

We have also had a number of staff members who have gone out of their way to make a difference. 

Mrs Bell and Mrs Richardson have been busy making scrub bags and face masks for frontline workers to use to help stay safe. Mrs Richardson has also signed up to be a first responder.

Mrs Heslop has dedicated her time to others by delivering prescriptions and food parcels to those who cannot leave their homes.

Finally, our wonderful technology team worked tirelessly to produce PPE for frontline workers. Using our school's laser cutter, the team produced over 3,200 protective visors for essential workers across the region!

We thank you all for your brilliant efforts.
