Castle Hill School Fundraising Working Party raises money for targeted areas within school and provides 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 Regulation Room. These changes and additions to school make a huge positive difference to the students learning experiences. Since 2019 we have raised over £14ktowards the cost of two new school minibuses, which arrived in September 2021. The new minibuses provide greater opportunities for community links, supporting our school vision.
In 2021-2022 our fundraising efforts are focussed on the development of two shared rooms within school, to create an additional Sensory Room and an additional Sensory Regulation Room.
We also support a number of other charities and causes throughout the year, such as Jeans for Genes, the Forget Me Not Trust, Wear it Pink Day, Martin House, Macmillan Coffee Morning, Children in Need and Red Nose Day.

Ways to help
There are a number of ways that you can help us with our fundraising.
Invest My Community (formerly Donate my School):
We have joined up with Invest my Community where you can run your own fundraising campaign or donate direct to our school page.

When online shopping via EasyFundraising, you can help raise funds for school whilst using a variety of online shops.
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 School we enhance our provision for communication through charitable donations and fundraising. We continually fund raise to meet our students needs and to replace old and out of date communication aids.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.
