Our Charities

Last Year we raised over £1,500 for our School Charities!

Throughout the school year all members of the Netherfield School community will take part in a range of activities to raise money for charity. This year we have decided to support 8 charities: 2 Local, 2 National and 4 International so that our children's understanding of these charities and the reasons behind them raising money will be heightened.

Local: 

Chestnut Tree Children's Hospice

Chestnut Tree House is the children’s hospice for East and West Sussex and South East Hampshire and cares for 300 children and young adults from 0-19 years of age with progressive life-shortening condition. We have held a number of school discos and a retiring collection after both Harvest and our Carol services.
