25.11.16 - Children in Need

This year’s BBC Children in Need broke all previous fund raising records with over £46.5m pledged by the great British public. Wanting to do our part too, we had a special non-uniform day so that everyone – that’s staff and students – could do their bit for this fantastic fund raiser.

So when children and adults turned up in an imaginative mix of fancy dress and out of school clothing we knew we were onto a good thing. Thanks to the generosity of those who took part, we raised the sum of £437.35 towards the overall £46,624,259 raised for BBC Children in Need. A special thank you went out to school children across the UK during the live show on Friday 18 November acknowledging all those who had pulled out all the stops in their ‘Spotactular’ fundraising.

We’re extremely proud of all our supportive staff and students who gave towards such a great cause. After all, every penny counts!

BBC Children in Need is now in its 36th year. For more information, visit
