At Christ’s Hospital our responsibility to our core goal of social mobility includes the commitment to doing so within our local and wider community. We offer our amenities, engage with organisations and welcome members of the local and wider community to share in the extensive grounds, facilities and our other resources.
We run a diverse range of events for groups and individuals, including weekly lunchtime concerts, a variety of termly theatrical performances and musical events, weekly historic tours and community lunches are held monthly.
Our extensive community action programme started in 1987 and involves over 200 of our pupils each week. More than 30 different placements are organised on a weekly basis throughout the academic year including nursery schools, primary schools, special needs schools, residential homes for the elderly, hospices and charity shops as well as a Ready and Able Sports Club and CH Day Centre lunches.
Each term events, challenges and workshops are held for local schools. We were delighted to welcome over 1800 visiting pupils to our events during the 2017/18 academic year.
They enjoyed a diverse range of activities which included a Science Day for Year 5 pupils, Year 4 and a Year 5 Maths Challenges, several events and productions in our theatre, Year 4 and Year 5 History and Cricket workshops plus two poster project days in our Art Department. Our annual Choral Day is a favourite for the visiting schools and we are looking forward to welcoming over 300 Year 5s to this event in 2019.
