On Friday 19th October, Year 12 decided to take on staff in a charity football match, in memory of our amazing friend Emily Pattison.

We never thought the turn out would have been so good, we only expected a few from our year group and maybe a few in lower school to watch. The match was good-competitive, but ultimately our team of Year 12s won!

We had a bake sale and a crossbar challenge too, and there is a raffle organised for later this week.

So far, we managed to raise an amazing amount of £3,274. which is the most the school has ever fundraised from one single event. 

I am absolutely gobsmacked and overwhelmed that as a school we have been able to achieve something so amazing. Emily was a very special girl, who touched so many people’s lives and this really does just show.

On behalf of Emily’s friends, I would like to thank everyone who donated, contributed and raised this much money for the incredible charities of Scott House and The Sick Children’s Trust. It really is incredible.
