Sixth Form Service

Making a difference

One of the things we pride ourselves on at Fyling Hall is our community feel, each year the school students select a charity to support and raise funds and awareness about this cause.

The sixth form all participate in the Making a Difference programme where each student dedicates a small amount of time (usually about an hour a week) to help in certain areas of community or charity work, and within the school – depending on their interests and aspirations.

We work with the students to look for fresh ideas and new ways that they can make a difference, but some of the usual areas include:

  • Helping in the Junior School (for example as maths or reading buddies),
  • Running the School Council,
  • Running the Food Council,
  • Acting as Subject Ambassadors supporting younger students,
  • Running the Fundraising Committee,
  • Organising fundraising initiatives and events,
  • Planning school events and helping at school events,
  • Working with the local community.

The Making A Difference programme helps students develop initiative, leadership skills and a sense of community as well as providing all-round skills sought after by Universities.
