A new community partnership project was launched in September 2019 for all our lower sixth students.

The aims of the project are to enable students to:

  • make a positive difference to other people’s lives
  • become more involved in the world beyond school
  • gain greater awareness of issues facing other communities
  • reinforce their subject knowledge
  • build upon communication and team-working skills
  • learn new skills and gain work experience
  • become well-rounded and empathetic individuals

This project also allows students to participate in the ‘vInspired’ volunteering award scheme, a nationally recognised, UCAS endorsed award for 10, 50 or 100 hours of flexible volunteering. Find out more at Vinspired.

Students are also required to volunteer one afternoon per week and are working with a variety of organisations such as:

  • QEF & MERU
  • BUPA Wingham Court
  • Elmbridge Rentstart
  • Claygate Primary School
  • St Paul’s Catholic Primary
  • Brooklands Museum
  • Whitely Village
  • St Andrew’s Primary School, Cobham
  • Cobham Centre for the Community
  • Rose Theatre, Kingston
  • Keep Britain Tidy
  • Painshill Park
