Raising money for Charity
Year 12 and 13 students have the opportunity to participate in a number of charity events over the two years. Some are for specific year groups; others are for the Sixth Form or school as a whole. Below are some photographs and some information about the events:
Children in Need
During this annual charity event the Year 12 students dress in fancy dress or the annual theme associated with the charity. Their role is to collect as much money as possible from the other students and staff.
Sixth Form students and staff dress in pink on a Friday in October for the annual Pink Month for Breast Cancer Research.
Christmas Jumper Day
A growing traditional around the country in December is to wear a Christmas jumper! Staff and Sixth Form Students wear a funny jumper and donated towards Save the Children
Each March the annual Red Nose/Sports Relief day gives the staff and students a ‘non-school uniform’ day to raise money for disadvantage people in the UK and Africa
Sponsor day is a 25 year tradition at the William de Ferrers School. Students in Year 7-9 have the opportunity to take part in a number of different activities with Year 12 students volunteering and developing their leadership skills. Money raised from the day is alternately donated to the Teenage Cancer Trust and Little Havens Hospice.
