Plympton Academy

Charity of the Year

 At the start of each academic year, students and staff are given the opportunity to nominate a charity to become Plympton Academy's Charity of the Year. The nominations are collated and then put to an academy wide vote. The winning charity is then supported throughout the year by a number of fundraising events.

Our charities of the year for 2023/24 are Cancer Research UK and Macmillan. 
A number of fundraising events will be taking place throughout the year including our charity week in December 2023 which included staff hobby horse racing; 'pie the teacher' and a non-uniform day. There will be events throughout the year with the final fundraising total announced in July 2024. 
Our previous charities of the year were:
The Oddballs Foundation (2022/23)
RNLI (2021 / 2022)
St Luke's Hospice (2020/21)
Crohns and Colitis UK (2019/20)

If you have any questions about our fundraising or would like to donate money, please contact Mr Ian Hartley via reception.
