Charity of the Year

About us > Charity of the Year

At Gresham’s, our pupils are encouraged to develop and foster a sense of moral and social responsibility, with many pupils and staff regularly fundraising for local and international charities.

Each year the school selects a charity to support and pupils get involved in all sorts of exciting fundraising events. Past activities have included sleeping outside in an igloo, cycling from Norfolk to Cornwall, dressing up, leg shaving and organising cake sales, to name a few.

Gresham’s is delighted to announce that the School Charity for 2021-22 is the Holt Youth Project, a local charity which aims to provide a safe environment for young people to meet and socialise with the minimum of supervision, building their social communication skills and promoting ownership.

Last year, the Charity Committee raised £19,182.35 for The Treehouse, a local charity situated in Holt that aims to help vulnerable children and adults within the community. To read more about last year’s fundraising activities, please click here.

Community Outreach

Pupils in the Senior School are regularly involved in charity events and volunteering in the community. Team Eco, a group of pupils who are championing environmental change around the School, have recently achieved the Eco-Schools Gold Award by promoting environmental change.
