A team of sixth form students recently brought one of our values, ‘caring for our Academy and the local community’ to life when they raised funds for the MacMillan Cancer Support charity. Embracing the theme ‘Change lives with every slice’ the students organised cake sales which formed part of what was the world’s biggest coffee morning on Friday 30th September 2016. The students sold a wide range of cakes in the restaurant and the Learning Resource Centre and raised a total of £220.

The event was organised, publicised and led by our Head Girl, Amber Tulett who had this to say: ‘As newly appointed Head Girl, I was determined to jump straight into my role and to lead my first event in what I do best; charity work. MacMillan Cancer Support aims to reach and improve the lives of everyone living with cancer and to inspire millions of others to do the same. ,According to the charity, ’There are 2.5 million people living with cancer in the UK today, and as more people live longer with cancer, this number is set to grow to 4 million by 2030; we want to make sure we can provide support to everyone who needs it.’ The £220 we raised was as a result of team work and whole school participation. Thank you to everyone for your help in raising this money for MacMillan Cancer Support. I am so grateful to have such a great team to work with during my time as Head Girl.
