Volunteering at Belmont School

Partner: Belmont School, Cheltenham
Partner type: Maintained School
Project category: Volunteering

Belmont School is a school for children from ages five to sixteen living with disabilities both mental and physical, and our girls work closely with the staff in various areas, both curricular and extra-curricular. The school's ethos is "to be the best we can be" and thus the curriculum is varied, allowing for a comprehensive and positive approach to learning which we encourage our girls to foster as well in their volunteering efforts.
