Become a volunteer

Volunteering is a great way to gain insights into what actually goes on during the school day – and could even pave the way for a school-based career. Our schools are very welcoming of volunteers, even if you don’t have any experience of working with children.

There are many different ways in which volunteers can help in schools – on an ad hoc or regular basis:

  • Listening to children read
  • Helping with numeracy
  • Sharing your professional skills
  • Helping with classroom activities i.e. cookery
  • Helping on school trips
  • Helping with sporting events, music or drama productions

If you have an interest in volunteering at one of our schools, we would love to hear from you.  You can either contact the schools directly – see the Our Schools page for more details. Alternatively, email for further information.
