Valentine’s charity week raises over £3,000

Valentine's pop-up restaurant

Pupils from Nicholson house raised a stunning £3,278.60 – and counting – for good causes during their Valentine’s charity week.

Chocolate treat makers

A non-uniform day, chocolate treat sale (pictured being made by pupils in the school kitchen), golf driving range and our sixth formers’ lunchtime tray-clearing-away service were all among the initiatives that helped raise the massive total.

Pop-up restaurant

One of the biggest money-raisers of the week, though, was the raffle for the chance to eat lunch in our Valentine’s pop-up restaurant.


Featuring a reception drink, a live band and waiter service from teachers and pupils, our winners were given VIP treatment in the restaurant and – the biggest prize of all – the school’s legendary chicken burger for lunch.

House charities

Each of our four houses run a charity week during the school year to raise money for their nominated causes, with the cash raised this year being split equally between:

In addition, the money raised from the Valentine’s non-uniform day will be donated to EducAid, who run the only free secondary schools in Sierra Leone.
