Civvies Day on Monday

On Monday 23rd January we have our termly civvies day to raise money to support charities both locally, nationally and internationally. This Monday, we are supporting the Sixth Form’s chosen charity, Nyumbani UK and the Hotcourses Foundation, registered number:  1104396
This charity supports some of the world’s poorest children offering them nutritional, medical, psychological and academic care. Our Sixth Formers chose to work with this charity after Miss Emmett visited Kenya and then shared some of her photographs with students.
Students do not have to participate and can wear normal uniform, however, if they would like to support the cause, they can wear civvies and pay a £1 donation at the door. There has been a cold weather warning so please encourage students to wear warm items and to still bring a coat!

Can you help support our Business Lunches?

Following the success of last year’s “Business Lunch” programme we are looking for more professionals from our local community to volunteer to host a short question and answer careers workshop in school to small groups of our higher attaining students (6-8).

The aim of the workshop is to give our students a real insight into the world of work, different career paths and to find out more about a typical working day. Previously, we have had volunteers from a wide range of industries including:  Construction, Engineering and Management.
Workshops take place on a Friday afternoon (1.25pm-2.00pm)
To sign up or for more information please contact Miss Lees by email: Kerry.Lees@epschool.org
