We strongly value our links with the local and global community. Our pupils regularly support various charities by holding special events.

There is a Skype Pals Club when our pupils talk to children in Sri Lanka every week via Skype video calls.

The Music department also supports the Hurstpierpoint Village Festival each year.

Pupils are responsible for organising their own House Charity Days during the Michaelmas and Lent terms, when they raise funds for UK or international causes of their choice.

Recent beneficiaries include:


Raystede is a charity, which relies entirely on voluntary donations, and was set up to rescue, re-home and provide sanctuary for over 1,500 animals each year.  .

In 2015, over £1,000 was raised by the pupils in Scott’s House on their Charity Day. The children set up cake stalls and games to raise funds and also donated money to attend school in non-uniform.

Some of our pupils were given a behind-the-scenes tour to find out how the money would be spent.


Chestnut Tree House

Chestnut Tree House is the only children’s hospice in Sussex and cares for more than 300 children and young adults with progressive life-shortening conditions.

In December, more than 70 pupils took part in a sponsored Reindeer Run and, combined with an own-clothes day and cake sale, helped to raise more than £2,000 for Chestnut Tree House and three other charities: Macmillan Cancer Support, NSPCC and Young Epilepsy.


Macmillan Cancer Support

The Prep School takes part in the annual World’s Biggest Coffee Morning for Macmillan Cancer Support each September.



The National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children stands up for children in demanding changes in law to better protect them.


Young Epilepsy

Young Epilepsy is the national charity working to support and improve the lives of children and young people with epilepsy and associated conditions.



Many of our children attended our Magic and Mind reading Show with professional magician-turned teacher, Peter Wells. The event was organised by Senior School students in Woodard House. The event sold out and over £1,500 was raised from ticket sales and donations.


Malawi Project (Senior School)

The Prep School supports the Senior School and Sixth Form’s fundraising for their bi-annual trip to Malawi where the students help to build houses in our partner village, Chilingani.

Pass It On Africa

Our children held their own Heroes Run for Pass It On Africa, a Brighton-based charity that aims to build schools and support education in the poorest parts of Africa.
