Within our school community many students and staff have been touched by Cancer. We have Cancer survivors within the school and have even lost members of staff to Cancer. For our community, it is personal and we want to take the fight to Cancer! 

On the 5th April 2019 we are holding our Race for Life event. This year the students voted to support Cancer Research UK as our international charity for this year. We would like to support this great cause with a big fundraising event. On the 5th April the students and staff will all be looking to raise money by running, walking, jogging and dancing their way around the 5km route we have planned.

Couch to 5K programme

On the 5th of April we will hold a tag day so if the students could bring in £1 on the day for this to hand to their tutors during registration. We hope to encourage them to wear the cancer research colour of pink on this day. Further to this we would like to challenge students and staff to raise at least £10 each and run our 5km route. You can donate at the link below or students of the school can bring in cash donations providing they are in a sealed envelope labelled Race for Life and this is taken to our finance team.
