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 outside 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 a 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
