Castle Hill School Fundraising Committee supports our school by raising money for targeted issues within school and to provide opportunities for families and school to further a sense of community.
In the past we have successfully fundraised for the School Library, a Sensory Pod and the development of our Sensory Integration Room. These changes and additions to school make a huge positive difference to the students learning experiences. Last academic year we raised over £14k towards a new mini-bus, this money will provide the match funding that is required to submit an application to Sunshine Coaches. Sunshine Coaches will match our fundraising with a further £14k that will enable us to get the new bus. Due to issues relating to the current pandemic things are moving slowly at the moment and there has been a delay on the mini-bus arriving but we are hoping we will soon be making use of it to take students out and about in the community.
We also support a number of other charities and causes throughout the year. Recently we have supported Jeans for Genes, the Forget Me Not Trust, Wear it Pink Day, Martin House, Macmillan Coffee Morning, Children in Need and Red Nose Day.
If you wish to know more about our fundraising or to offer us a donation or sponsorship please contact Steve Perren, Principal or Howard Owen, Business Manager.

We fundraise for:
Communication is the fundamental right of every person. It’s what makes us human. Many of our students cannot communicate using speaking and listening, they use PECS symbols, sign language and some use communication aids. These are specialist pieces of equipment which vary in price from £10 to £14,000. Without these aids many of our children wouldn’t have a voice.
Here at Castle Hill we rely on charitable donations and fundraising to meet the communication needs of our students. We continually fund raise to meet our students needs and replace old and out of date communication aids. We are very lucky to be supported by the Round Table, Huddersfield Lions and Lamplighters and would like to thank them for all the support they give us.
Please visit the Inclusive Technology Website for some of the aids we use.
Every year we hold a Graduation Day Celebration for our students who are leaving school.
We are very lucky to have been regularly supported in this by Cummins Turbo Technologies, Forever Green Florists and, SSL Limousines who help to make this event a success. Parents and families also support our fundraising for this event.
