our school charity
On Friday 24 September 2021, a number of students took on the task of choosing our school charity for this academic year. In a Dragons’ Den style event, three local charities were invited in to pitch their charity to our students. These were the Youth Enquiry Service, Tiggywinkles Wildlife Hospital and Wycombe Mind. After a number of insightful questions and much deliberation, we are pleased to report that the chosen charity this year is the Youth Enquiry Service.
The Youth Enquiry Service (YES) is a charity based in High Wycombe that offers free and confidential support and counselling to 13-25 year olds. They work with young people experiencing a wide variety of social welfare issues; these include housing, debt, sexual health, education and employment. For more information, please visit www.yeswycombe.org.
A big thank you to all three charities for taking the time to pitch to our students and here’s to another fantastic year of fundraising!
Mr J Clarke, Assistant Headteacher
