Charity Work

Are you someone who gains satisfaction from helping others? If so there are lots of ways you can engage with the community and involve yourself in charitable activities. Our students are encouraged to raise awareness of causes and organise ways to raise funds for our agreed charities.  It's an excellent opportunity to make a difference in the community, whilst gaining vital experience and increasing employability skills for the future. 

At Outwood Academy Easingwold our post 16 students take part in a variety of charity and voluntary activities. Recent achievements include a group of sixth form students and staff walking the Yorkshire Three Peaks to raise money for a mental health charity. Recently, Year 12 students completed a relay, running over 200 miles between them and raising more than £500 for two charities chosen by the students. Post 16 students organised a bake sale to raise money for the British Heart Foundation. Every year the students organise a fundraising activity for Comic Relief, a popular activity being to wax the teachers’ legs! 

We also take part in the Princes’ Trust Money Makers scheme, a competition between schools and teams which encourages students to use their entrepreneurial skills to create a business and make money which then goes towards charitable causes supported by the Princes’ Trust. 

We are always keen to support students with any volunteering or fundraising in which they want to participate.
