Nominated Charities

Supporting local and International charities is an important part of the outreach work at Whitgift. It helps to raise awareness amongst both students and staff, and funds raised assist some of the most vunerable people in society. Nearly £7,000 was raised in 2019 for Bees for Development, ShelterBox and a local charity called Canine Partners.

The work at Whitgift is co-ordinated by the Charities Committee. Raising funds involves students running events, liaising with and promoting charities. Last year, several successful events were accomplished in partnership with members of the Parents' Association.

All the charities supported by the School are chosen by the Charities Committee and are based on recommendations received from pupils and staff.

Lives Not Knives are dedicated to preventing youth violence in London and aim to do so through offering tailored mentorship and advice to young people.
