We Care to Challenge

The Money Marathon House Fundraising Competition has been run thoughout this term by Mrs Coombes (website manager) who is running the 2017 London Marathon on 23rd April in aid of The Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice.

Students collected spare coins and loose change in their Tutor Group collection boxes to help their House reach the furthest distance and raise the most money for their House Charities and Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice. 

3rd April 2017

Final Results: 

The coins have all been counted and the results are in...

As a school we collected
 over 28,000 coins
 totalling 600.78m and £878.39!

Congratulations go to Mistral who came out on top collecting both the furthest distance of coins and also raising the most money proving themselves to be the most generous House this term.






All Houses exceeded all expectations by not only reaching the finishing line at 26.2m but also travelling way beyond! Well done also to the four individual Tutor Groups who managed to collect 26.2m: 7W, 8T, 8X and 10X.


The Tutor Group Winners were:

    Distance Amount 
  1st 7W - 73.7m 8T - £82.28
  2nd 8T - 44.6m 8V - £55.37
  3rd 8X - 32.91m 7W - £46.36



I am completely blown away by the generosity and support from the whole school which far exceeded all expectations. A huge thank you to all who donated!
