Claires Court wins ISA Award for Outstanding Community Involvement
At a ceremony on Thursday 7 November, Claires Court were delighted to be announced as winners of the Independent Schools Associations award for ‘Outstanding Community Involvement.’ The award recognises a school for the 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 Strand water stream as it flows into Maidenhead, our Junior pupils ‘Clothes Swap’ and ‘Cake sales’ 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’ to build an education centre. During the October half term our Sixth Form students travelled to The Gambia to see how the money raised so far has helped whilst running activities at the education centre.
