Last Friday we joined the rest of the UK in celebrating Red Nose Day 2023. Through our efforts we helped raise money for Comic Relief; their mission is to decrease poverty, violence and discrimination across the world.

Comic Relief has been an active charity since 1984. They raised over £55 million last year and in total they have donated over £1 billion to charitable causes. You can find more information about how your support helps them, by clicking here:

Red Nose Day holds a special place in Devizes' heart as we think increasing the quality of life for vulnerable people is of the utmost importance. The event also gives us an opportunity to teach our pupils/students the significance of charity, kindness and understanding. To celebrate Red Nose Day we invited our students to attend school in non-uniform. Each of our children also donated £1 to help Comic Relief. Finally, Year 8 participated in a cake sale to raise money and completed their Extra8 community project.

When Asked about Red Nose Day, Vice Principal Mr Cave had to say "Comic Relief do so much to help those both locally and around the world. It's great to be a part of something so positive in dealing with challenges and tragedies, and to come together to support this cause."

We were proud to see our staff and students wearing their red noses this week. Everyone had a fantastic time raising money and we are glad to say we support Comic Relief!
