The Little Princess Trust is a children's cancer charity and their mission is to provide real hair wigs for children for the duration of their treatment.
The British Red Cross provides urgently needed shelter, food, clean water and first aid to the families left homeless following the devastation across the Caribbean by Hurricane Matthew, especially in Haiti. About 1 million people have been affected by the 175 mph storm - schools, healthcare centres and hospitals have been lost.
It is so important to think globally, but to act locally. Great to report that we have raised £861.66.

We believe every child and young adult at Sprowston Community High School should be ... 'Healthy, happy and safe; loved, valued and respected; and have high aspirations for their future.'
Congratulations top all students who were nominated for Star of the Week by members of staff this half term. The reasons for being nominated can vary from outstanding contribution during discussions, fantastic homework, to supporting peers in some way and showing empathy to others. Anything that stands out, however big or small can be recognised.
These are always added to our Twitter feed along with photographs of the students nominated.
Well done and keep it up.
Congratulations to Alice, Joao and Samuel for successfully completing 'The Brilliant Club' course and their fantastic effort throughout.
The Brilliant Club is an award winning charity that exists to widen access to highly selective universities for pupils from under represented groups. The way that we do this is by recruiting, training and placing doctoral and postdoctoral researchers in non-selective state schools across the country.
Thank you to all the parents, carers and guardians of Year 7 pupils that filled in the parent view questionnaire at the last parent's evening, the responses of which can be on the Parent View page.
Congratulations to all the students from this half term who achieved an Academic Success Award. This is to recognise their outstanding academic achievement and attitude.
The awards are given by class teachers to those students who have shone in terms of working extra hard in and out of lessons, or persevering with difficult work, along with those who have exceeded their personal target grades and achieved at a high level.
Well done to all students and keep up these really high standards for the rest of the year.
Unfortunately we have had to cancel the Movie Night due to low numbers.
Refunds will be available at student reception after half term.
Make sure you bring your ticket.
Sorry if this causes any inconvenience.
Hope you have a nice half term and Halloween.
