We are very aware that there are plenty of people less fortunate than ourselves and we take pride in doing our best to help them, therefore fundraising plays a prominent role in school life. This is usually undertaken in House groupsand we have supported and continue to support a variety of charities.
These range from home-grown causes such as the RNLI, Parkinson’s UK and Jeans for Genes to charities further afield, such as The Bethany Project in Tanzania, a music school in Albania and the worldwide Shoebox Appeal.
Hornby Campus is relishing developing close links with the wider community. Local residents are invited to various events throughout the year, including the Summer Fair and Open Morning. Our school also enjoys outreach projects with people who are unable to get to school. In the past our junior students undertook a tour of some local care homes and entertained the residents with a short collection of songs. Both students and residents enjoyed the experience and it is something which we hope to continue in the future. Students also took part in a performance at the Hornby Institute and this was extremely well-received by the local community.
