We have set up the Castle Hill School Fundraising Committee in order to support our pupils by raising money for targeted issues within school and to provide opportunities for families and school to further a sense of community. Over the school year we hope to organise a number of events and activities that will bring families into school and help raise awareness and funds.
In the past we have successfully fundraised for our School Library, a Sensory Pod and the development of our Sensory Integration Room. Our focus is now directed towards raising funds for a new school minibus.
As a school we are developing external links within the community to promote well-being amongst our students and community. The bus will be used to access life-enriching facilities, that may be otherwise inaccessible for our students, such as visits to other schools and leisure facilities. A minibus would enable more of our students to take part in community links and work experience.
We hope you can help.
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 We continually fund raise to meet our students needs and replace old and out of date communication aids.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.
