Seaford College, West Sussex
Seaford College’s community work has been hugely recognisable this year with the school receiving an award at the ‘Making a Lasting Difference’ South Region Awards for the ‘Community Project of the Year.’ The award recognised Seaford College’s involvement in the Whyke Estate, Chichester, as part of the school’s Community Action Day in July. Students and staff carried out a variety of tasks to help those who are registered as vulnerable, due to physical disability, learning difficulties, or old age. It is likely that Seaford College will go through to the National Awards, and the school looks forward to returning to the Whyke Estate as part of the Community Action Day in 2015.
