Student Volunteering

The College’s thriving Charities Committee is a group of pro-active individuals with a strong social conscience. They are led by a smaller group of students and the whole committee meet on a weekly basis to discuss possible fundraising ideas and charities to support.

The Committee try to organise at least one event per half-term and support both national and local charities. They always welcome new members and encourage students to put their ideas forward for causes that are especially close to their hearts.

Last year, students raised more than two and a half thousand pounds for a number of good causes including, Macmillan Cancer Support, Children in Need, the British Heart Foundation and Salvation Army, to name just a few.

Students also have the opportunity to volunteer as a library mentor during their study periods.


Peer Education

Opportunities are available for students to work with groups of local primary school children as part of the College’s Peer Mentoring schemes.

The College runs two separate initiates, one delivering anti-bullying education to Years 5 and 6 children in the area and Reading Mentor Scheme, where students work with primary school children across all ages to help develop their reading skills.
