During the past year, pupils at Oakham School have raised more than £26,000 for local and national charities.

These included supporting campaigns such as Children in Need, the Poppy Appeal and Macmillan Coffee Morning, whilst others have focused on supporting the local Oakham community.

Worldwide fundraising projects have also taken place with over £9,000 raised for the Kenya Schools Project, which sees pupils take part in a Kenyan expedition to work in schools and build and refurbish classrooms.

In addition to their fundraising efforts, pupils spent nearly 100 hours volunteering in 2022, with activities including placements at local primary schools, nurseries and a local care home.

Chris West-Sadler, Head of Voluntary Action, said: "Once more Oakhamians have upheld our key values of Care and Contribution for those who really need it in the wider community both locally and beyond.

"This is something of which we are enormously proud."
