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 groups and we have supported and continue to support a variety of charities.
These range from home-grown causes such as the St John’s Hospice, British Heart Foundation, RNLI, Cancer Research, 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.
Last year our sixth form undertook voluntary work at St John’s Hospice. Which was really well received. You can read more about this venture here: St John’s Volunteer day
