Charity 2016

Each year, our Head Boy and Head Girl select a charity to support through various events and activities.

The Otakar Kraus Music Trust (OKMT) is a registered charity, based in Twickenham, which provides music therapy and music projects for children, young people and adults with physical, learning, neurological or psychological difficulties, in the Boroughs of Richmond, Hounslow and surrounding areas. Music touches our emotions deeply and music therapy can enable those who find it hard to communicate through traditional methods to express themselves and interact with others.

Smile Train is an international children’s charity with a sustainable approach to a single, solvable problem: cleft lip and palate.

Millions of children in developing countries with untreated clefts live in isolation, but more importantly, have difficulty eating, breathing and speaking. Cleft repair surgery is simple, and the transformation is immediate. Their sustainable model provides training, funding, and resources to empower local doctors in 85+ developing countries to provide 100%-free cleft repair surgery and comprehensive cleft care in their own communities.
