Our pupils volunteer locally with a number of different organisations, most notably the Churches Housing Action Trust and the Margaret Allan House for the elderly as well as with Hospice-care and many other groups. We have excellent relationships with these and many other charities in which we do not just raise money, but also undertake meaningful work too.
To offer support to this excellent local group.
We have a close link through a member of staff , and we have now developed this into a regular volunteering activity
