Charitable Work

At Brentwood Preparatory School pupils are encouraged to be enterprising and develop their own ideas and sense of responsibility. They learn to contribute to the wider community and through many pupil-led fundraising initiatives, their eyes are opened to the world beyond school.

Last academic year Brentwood Preparatory and Senior School pupils and staff raised over £19,000 for a wide range of charities. Preparatory School pupils raised £8737 in total for charities including the Royal British Legion, the Red Cross, MND, NSPCC, Sports Relief, Kids Inspire, Crisis at Christmas, First Step as well as numerous others.

Christmas performances raised over £960 for Little Havens Children’s Hospital and Christmas Jumper Day raised over £650 for Save the Children. Harvest festival donations went to the Harold Wood Food Bank and pupils were brought a bandaged bear to School for Children in Need and raised over £340.

Other highlights included raising £1492 for the Watoto Choir by holding various fundraisers, dressing up for World Book Day, which raised £537 for the Harold Hill Food Bank and Brentwood Foyer Federation and raising £1155 from the sale of School Disco tickets, which was split between GOSH, St Francis Hospice, Lord's Taverners and Brooke Animal Hospital.

Our most recent Macmillan Coffee Morning raised £120.
