This year we are delighted to be support 3 charities at Christmas-time.
Christmas Hamper Appeal for Years 7 & 8.
Each tutor group in Years 7 and 8 are designing and filling a hamper which will be delivered to Whiteley Home Trust during our last week of term. There is a house competition for the best decorated, best filled, and best presented hamper. Click here to see a list of ideas for suitable hamper items.
