The Charities Committee is a group of about a dozen Sixth Form pupils led by the don in charge. The pupils carry out numerous fundraising initiatives, including fun runs, 24-hr sponsored events, calendar and cookbook sales, as well as plays and concerts. The money raised supports three nominated charities: one local, one national and one international. Each charity is supported for a period of three years. All charities chosen support the education and development of young people. The current charities are:

  • Winchester Young Carers – a local charity supporting young people who act as carers for members of their families.
  • NSPCC - the UK's leading children's charity, preventing abuse and helping those affected to recover.
  • Stay at School Nepal - a charity working to reduce drop-out rates and improve educational attainment in the poor mountain regions of Nepal.

We also support the Lotus Flower Trust on an ongoing basis. The charity helps to build schools, homes and centres in remote, rural and environmentally challenging areas of India. More information on the partnership can be found here.
