On Friday 7 October, Claremont Fan Court School invited pupils and staff to wear yellow to raise awareness around mental health and to support the vital work of Young Minds UK charity. The day was a wonderful success and it was fantastic to see so much yellow on show throughout the school, from yellow bows in nursery to smart yellow ties in the sixth form.

Fundraising events included Senior School pupils getting their nails painted yellow by our volunteer sixth formers and enjoying a delicious hug in a mug (hot chocolate) at breaktime. There was also a danceathon where pupils worked on their physical and mental health by learning a new dance routine.

A huge thank you to all those who have donated via our JustGiving page! There is still time to donate by clicking the button below.
