Big-hearted students have a grand term

Our students are never slow when it comes to raising money for charity, and a recent bake sale has seen more cash going to a good cause.

Year 11 student Lia held her bake sale before the holiday and raised a total of £368 for the cancer charity Macmillan.

Studying maths, biology and psychology, Lia has plans to work in the field of neuro-science and decided to hold the bake sale around the time of her 16th birthday in November.

She chose the charity because cancer has impacted her own family, and Lia is one of a number of our students who have chosen to raise money to help others over last term.

A group of Year 7 students donned antlers to take part in a sponsored Rudolph un before Christmas, and raised £369 for the Arthur Rank Hospice Charity. It works with the Alan Hudson Day Centre in Wisbech as well as looking after people in their own homes.

Our Raising Standards Leader for Year 7, Mrs Heasell, led the initiative and joined the students taking part.

The sixth form also raised £184 when fancy dress was the name of the game for the annual BBC’s Children In Need day - and there were some amazing costumes on display.

All the fundraisers took place during November and December last year and together raised almost £1,000 - an amazing effort by everyone involved.

“We are very proud of the generosity of our students, those who arrange events and those who support them. Helping others is a big part of our ethos and our academy family and our staff are also to be praised for encouraging everyone to support good causes,” said Principal Mr Scott.

“We look forward to the new term and can’t wait to see how our students continue to help others. Time is just as valuable as money, and volunteering is a huge commitment many students have already made.”
