Shortlisted for ISA Community Award
The finalists for the Independent Schools Association annual awards have been announced for 2019 with Claires Court being shortlisted alongside two other schools for the ‘ISA Award for Outstanding Community Involvement’.
The award recognises a school for their contribution and engagement within their local community for the benefit of both the pupils and the residents. Over the past year Claires Court has been involved in numerous projects to give back to the local community, including our Senior pupils volunteering with Maidenhead Waterways Restoration Trust to clean the banks of the River Thames; our Junior Girls ‘Clothes Swap’ in conjunction with Cancer Research and our annual ‘Charity Week’ to raise money and awareness of local, national and international charities.
The award also recognises engagement further afield to include work in other countries, such as our fundraising efforts to support ‘Charity Pearl The Gambia’ building an education centre. In October students from our Sixth Form will be travelling to The Gambia to see how the money raised so far has helped and to run activities at the education centre.
James Wilding, Academic Principal, commented:
“I am delighted that our application for the ‘Outstanding Community Involvement’ award has been selected as a finalist and look forward to the results being determined in November”.
