Community Action

Over 150 senior pupils (Years 10 – 13) voluntarily participate in the Community Action programme 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, which take place on the School site.

Visits and activities take place in the afternoon 4 days a week in Horsham, Southwater, Billingshurst and Worthing. The School and some local voluntary agencies in and around Horsham provide transport.

Community Action has been organised at CH since 1987 and is currently led by Graham Chandler.
