Our philosophy at King James´s is to encourage a sense of charity and community amongst students to prepare them for playing their part in society as responsible, caring citizens.
Throughout the school year, students at King James´s are encouraged to participate in a wide range of charity events. As well as supporting causes at a local, national and international level, many students get involved in planning and running their own fundraising initiatives.
Over the past year, charity events have included:
- non-uniform days when the school community joins together to support causes such as Sport Relief and Children in Need
- fundraising events for the school´s nominated local charity for the year (in 2015/16 this is the Harrogate Homeless Project)
- the Year 9 active citizenship project, which involves students raising money for local charities
- the Sixth Form AMP Awards project, which raises money for PumpAid
- fundraising events run by our ASDAN Cope students
- individual students´ and forms´ cake sales, sponge throws, sponsored sporting events, car washing, Christmas parties, galas, tombolas, a 12-hour sportathlon... to name but a few!
