We attach great importance to charitable giving at Falcons School and feel it vital that our pupils are fully involved in choosing the charities we support and in sharing ideas for fundraising. When children are educated about charity, they learn to be considerate of others, to be careful of what they have and to show compassion. Our pupils are keen to support charities based in the local area and we have formed strong links with local charities.

Our school charity for 2023-2025, voted by the pupils and staff, is the Royal Trinity Hospice. Their hospice is in Clapham Common and their second-hand shop is on Putney High Street. We have lots of community and fundraising events planned in collaboration with this amazing charity, including our annual fundraising Readathon, alongside volunteering in their shop and supporting the residents by helping in their garden and interacting with residents.

Our Year 6 pupils participate in a business project after the 11+, which culminates in each group designing, creating and selling their products at an Enterprise Fair with all their profits going to their charities of choice. Last year these charities were Dementia UK, Cancer Research UK, Team Margot all receiving a share of over £1000.

Our pupils are often prompted to run stand-alone fundraising events in response to specific disasters around the world:

Action Aid– Non-Uniform day, organised by pupils for the Syria and Turkey Earthquake Appeal

UNICEF – Pupils took part in a ‘Move for Morocco’ fundraising event in September 2023

Rehmat Trust – Pupils organised a karaoke event to fundraise for the floods in Pakistan.


Below is a list of charities we have supported in the past two years:

Wandsworth Food Bank – Our Harvest donation to Wandsworth Foodbank in 2023 weighed in at 191kg which provided over 300 meals for people across the borough.

Roehampton Community Box – Our staff donate regularly to this charity supporting local families in need, most notably as a replacement for their ‘secret Santa’ donations – leading by example to our school community.

Community Heartbeat Trust – this was our school charity for 2021-2023. Pupils raised money over various fundraising events to fund a community AED, soon to be installed in Wandsworth Park.
