Each year, the school picks a charity to support.

Parents chose the CHSF after drama teacher Catherine Fearn’s two-year-old nephew Jack Hartley and former nursery assistant Lottie Haggas underwent life-saving surgery at Leeds General Infirmary.

During the past two years, the school has raised almost £11,000 for CHSF.
