It is an opportunity for young change-makers to come together and celebrate their year of action. Students can’t buy a ticket to WE Day, they earn their way by taking one local and one global action through the year-long WE Schools programme’.

In December 2017 a group of year 9 Foundation students organised for the school to be a drop-off point for a local foodbank. It was initially set up to support the charity over Christmas. However, students decided to continue to keep the food basket throughout the academic year.  Located in the reception area.
