Acorn Education Trust would like to say a massive thank you to the very generous support of Comic Relief's Red Nose Day from our pupils, their families and Acorn staff.

The donations have helped support millions of people across the UK and around the world in breaking free from poverty, violence and discrimination.

See below for some of the wonderful fundraising that has taken place across Acorn settings:

At Clarendon Academy there was a range of activities to raise money for both Comic Relief and in support of Ukraine, including: a non-school uniform day, hair chalk, a charity football match of staff vs Year 10, ‘Pie the Teacher’ raffle, ‘Sponge the Teacher’ and bake sale, which altogether raised an incredible £592.94 for both causes.
