Wakefield Girls’ High School


Girls are conscious of international needs as well as those closer to home.

This is reflected in their enthusiasm and excitement for the various activities undertaken and amounts raised for worthy causes during each Academic Year.

The girls give much time and energy,as well as their own pocket money, recognising those less fortunate than themselves. In the process of fundraising the girls themselves benefit by developing new skills. They are encouraged to ‘project manage’ their own fundraising appeals working together to decide first how to raise the funds and then communicating their cause to the school community.They then ‘make it happen’ and usually also have a lot of fun in the process.

Children in Need, the Poppy Appeal, Red Nose Day, Barnados Shoe Box Appeal, Wakefield Hospice, to name a few, are well supported by the school. .

Retiring collections from concerts and plays allow us to donate to a number of causes, many of which are recommended by the School Council.
