Community partnership is an important aspect of being in the sixth form; it enables students to develop a wider sense of responsibility and world view.

A new community partnership project was launched in September 2019 for sixth form 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

Each year sixth form students are given the opportunity to select a charity. Students organise a range of events such as the Year 7 disco, a pantomime and the big breakfast to raise as much money as possible for their chosen charity. This is a great way to highlight charities which are important to our students, raise awareness and also raise important funds.

Sixth form students have been heavily involved with Claremont 100 fundraising. This charity initiative is part of Claremont’s centenary celebrations and aims for each pupil to raise £100 for five local charities. As part of this charity project, sixth form students have organised and been involved in events such as a talent show and a ‘big sleep out’ where they were sponsored to sleep rough overnight on school grounds.
