Year 7 Classrooms to Care Homes

Connecting schools to care homes to help alleviate loneliness for older people and the care home staff this Christmas and beyond.

With the English Department, in the run up to Christmas, Year 7 were given an opportunity to connect to our local community through the ‘Classrooms to Care Homes’ project, advertised by the TES magazine.



Students produced a wide range of beautiful and thoughtful cards, letters and pictures that have been sent to Highbury House care home in Rottingdean and Deans Wood care home in Woodingdean: over 100 residents in total!


This gave students a valuable opportunity to think carefully about the impact of this year on those less fortunate than themselves and their time and efforts are much appreciated.
