Charity at Slindon College
The College supports a number of national charities on an annual basis with various fundraising events including mufti-days, sponsored walks, cake sales, raffles. This allows the College to be able to make donations, monetary and goods, and raise awareness for those charities.
Each House chooses a local charity to support each academic year. Chosen charities for this year are:
The College encourages and supports pupils and staff to get involved in all kinds of voluntary and charity activities. The message that pupils have a moral obligation to help others less fortunate than themselves is reinforced within the framework of our termly assembly programme.
AquAid, The Africa Trust and Slindon College
The watercooler used at Slindon College is provided by AquAid. With every watercooler purchased AquAid makes a donation to The Africa Trust. The company also works with the charity to help fund and build waterpumps and thanks to a collaboration between the College and AquAid an 'Elephant Pump' is being built with Slindon College's help and name on it. The pump will help provide sustainable water to many drought ridden places on the African continent.
Community at Slindon College
The College operates a policy of offering the House and grounds at a reduced rate or gratis for any appropriate local community fundraising activity when possible. The parish church is permitted gratis use of the college grounds and facilities to host the annual village fete. The College regularly worships in the parish church and pupils undertake voluntary work in the Church grounds. The College opens up use of tennis courts and swimming pool to local residents in Summer holidays as well as other community initiatives.
The College has very close ties with Slindon C of E Primary School offering use of our minibus and driver to assist with transport to and from various educational visits, use of facilities and grounds and participating in numerous shared learning experiences.
