Learning & Achieving Together

Community

An important aspect of our work is community provision. One of our core values is 'Citizenship - Developing a responsibility to our families, school, community and world'.  This is demonstrated in a significant number of ways, both in how we celebrate our own diverse community with events such as our International Food Market and how we work both within our local, national and global communities.  

Brentside High School is actively involved in raising funds for a range of charities to support those less fortunate than ourselves, for example, Comic Relief, where our fund raising was recognised as so outstanding that our students became the public face of Comic Relief 2013 and are now going to be the public face of Sports Relief campaign 2017.

Community projects have included Year 10 citizenship students campaigning to raise awareness of local charities and a range of local and national issues that are important to them; organising Christmas parties for senior citizens from our local residential care home and also for John Chilton Special School;  school production matinees for local primary schools and singing at Christmas events at Pitshanger Light Up the Lights.

We have built strong international links with a range of countries including China, Japan, France and Australia. This has included hosting visits for teachers from abroad to develop their understanding of the British education system, as well as welcoming a world renowned film actress from Japan who came to see the outstanding work of our Visual Arts Department.
