Community Action Programme
We strongly believe in education going beyond the classroom, and that is why our school ethos ‘the whole person, the whole point’ serves to develop students in more than just academia. The philosophy of our Community Action Programme (CAP) is an important part of this, as it develops values which transcend race, class, religion, gender and politics, promotes international understanding and awareness of others, and encourages new skills and interests.
- Enjoy and find significance in a range of CAP experiences.
- Identify goals.
- Embrace new challenges and adapt to new roles.
- Actively participate in planned, sustained, and collaborative CAP projects.
- Explore new possibilities.
- Purposefully reflect upon your experiences.
- Develop strategies and determine further actions for personal growth.
- Understand you are a member of local and global communities with responsibilities towards the others and the environment.
Students and staff will volunteer their time and their skills to our charity partners, strengthening their organisations and reaching out to their beneficiaries. Worker appreciation days, local charity drives and much more will be developed over the course of the year.
Young people undertaking an introduction to leadership and will learn and demonstrate important life skills such as effective communication and organisation whilst learning to lead basic activities to younger people, their peers, older generations and within the community.
The course involves both guided & peer-to-peer learning and supervised leadership to ensure that learners have all the skills they need to lead basic activities to other people.

The Duke Edinburgh’s International Award is an internationally recognized program for young people, building their skills to equip them for life and work. By creating opportunities for young people to develop skills, get physically active, give service and experience adventure, the Award can play a critical role in their development.
