Thank you to everyone who wore denim to school yesterday in support of Jeans for Genes Day. Here are our year 7 pupils supporting the cause!

Jeans for Genes Day is the annual fundraising campaign for the genetic conditions community supporting people affected by a genetic condition. The monies raised on Jeans for Genes Day provide grants for day-to-day support, equipment, respite and events which bring together affected children and their families. There are between 4,000 and 6,000 diagnosed genetic conditions. It is estimated that one in 25 children is affected by a genetic condition and therefore 30,000 babies and children are newly diagnosed every year.

If your son/daughter wore jeans or denim to school yesterday we kindly ask, if you are able, for a donation of £1. Click on this text to contribute to Jeans for Genes Day online via our Just Giving Page. 

In addition to this, the science department will be running sessions throughout the week with key stage 3 classes to raise awareness, and support pupils' personal development.
