VolunteeringService in the community

Our community project in Swaziland - where we were helping to build a school - was one of the most rewarding parts of the trip. It was hard work learning how to mix cement and lay bricks, but really worth it and everyone was so appreciative.

We have a long tradition of pupils taking part in community service throughout the school years, but particularly in Years 10 upwards. Girls volunteer with local schools, charitable organisations and community projects for a minimum of one term but many continue for much longer. Volunteering and working on community projects is also an important aspect of the Duke of Edinburgh awards and the overseas expeditions.

Many of our students volunteer in local primary schools and nurseries – in recent years Flora Gardens, West London Free Primary School, John Betts, Brackenbury Primary School,  Jordans Montessori, Larmentier and Sacred Heart School – assisting in the classroom or setting up specific activities such as helping with Spanish conversation classes.
