Charitable activities

Pupils and staff at Packwood are proud to support many different charities – local, regional, national and international. Some we have developed longstanding relationships with over the years; others are voted for or nominated by the children to benefit from specific fundraising activities.

Gaining an insight into the lives of others less fortunate than themselves and into some of the big issues that affect the world around them is an invaluable element of the broader education and development of the children. They are keen to try to make a difference and to have a positive impact in whatever way they can.
