Charity Week 2021

Charity Week is a notable, much loved event run by the Sixth Form to raise money and awareness for our three charities. As with everything this year, we had to find a new way to allow it to take place and involve the whole school.

We provided daily virtual events, some pre-recorded and some live-streamed with an inter house twist, bringing out the competitive side of students and staff alike. Each event provided an opportunity for points to be won for the different houses as well as points awarded for the best costumes throughout the week.

We had our traditional Fancy Dress day on Friday and as usual we saw some amazing costumes. In addition to this, on Monday students and teachers came dressed in their House colours.

For the Sixth Form the whole week was an opportunity to dress up with a different costume theme each day.

We kicked off the week with a Brits on holiday dress up in the Sixth Form and a kahoot quiz on fun facts about teachers and the school’s history.

Tuesday followed with Sixth Formers dressed in school uniform and Man v Food where we challenged eight students to eat a plate of food as quickly as possible.

Wednesday was Beat the Teacher which involved four live-streamed events where students went head to head with teachers in various challenges such as an obstacle course, a quiz, dressing up and a speed pool game.

On Thursday, the Sixth Form came dressed as TV/Movie characters and the school was treated to eight pre-recorded performances in Teacher’s got Talent. Talent’s included: cake-decorating, musical performances and sports skills.

On Friday, we held our Battle of the Band’s event. During this live event we judged the costumes for each year group and finished the week with five amazing performances and announced the Charity week Winner - Burrows!

This year we raised £2,777.86. This money will go to:

  • The Snowdrop Trust (a charity that aims to provide nursing care at home for local children with life threatening or terminal illnesses);
  • The Trussell Trust (an NGO and charity that works to end the need for food banks around the UK);
  • The Black Curriculum (this charity aims to tackle the lack of Black British history that is taught in schools in the UK)

We hope everyone had a great week and we’d like to thank all the students and staff for their contributions and a massive thank you to everyone that donated!
