Pyjama Fundraiser Day 2023 – Sixth Form

Yesterday marked the first day of fundraising for this years chosen Sixth Form charity – Motor Neurone Disease Association; the charity was voted in by the Sixth Formers earlier this year.

The Sixth Formers and staff dressed in their pyjamas and spent their lunchtime watching The Polar Express and drinking hot chocolate.

Each tutor group submitted a photograph to enter an inter form contest to be the best dressed.

The support was amazing with most tutor groups having almost every student in their pyjamas.

They raised just over £100 to kick off their fundraising.

Wellbeing Ambassadors – Introduction

Our new Wellbeing Ambassadors are now actively supporting our students throughout the academy.

The team is made up of Y13 students who have completed and passed specific training which allows them to work across the whole school.

They are trained to offer advice and practical strategies which builds resilience and confidence for students.

They are a valuable asset to our already proactive wellbeing approach in school.

Students can identify them by their yellow lanyards and they are able to approach them if they have any issues, they are happy to help.

Sixth-Form students organised a Bake Sale for Children in Need 2023.

Once again there was an amazing selection of cakes on sale and not a crumb left by the end of morning break.

Thank you to all staff and students who baked or donated cakes for this event.

A special mention for Luke, one of our Year 7 roving Ambassadors for his amazing Pudsey Bear cake – it was delicious.

A total of £278.19 has been raised for Children in Need from the bake sale fundraiser!


World Mental Health Day – Young Minds Yellow Campaign

Yesterday was World Mental Health Day and the 6th Form supported this by taking part in Young Minds Hello Yellow campaign. Photos of the day can be found at the bottom of this page.
They dressed in yellow and sold ribbons to raise awareness. By wearing yellow and donating to support the cause, they have helped show young people that they matter and that they deserve the support they need, when they need it, no matter what.
They managed to raise £85! Well done to all of those who took part.
