Sevenoaks is committed to developing principled, caring young people who possess a sense of social responsibility.
A number of our students participate in school service, which includes opportunities such as our Charity Action Group, who get involved in fundraising across the school throughout the year, supporting our local and international charities.
Service opportunities also exist for helping with the elderly, teaching computing skills to the disabled, and serving tea for the local residential care home residents. Students can also opt to help with Environment Matters Society, act as Learning Support mentors, assisting with marketing and school PR activities, acting as ushers and stage hands for performing arts events and coaching Lower School students in mainstream sport and sailing.
We think of voluntary service in terms of social entrepreneurship. Over and above demonstrating compassion, Sevenoaks empowers children to use their academic privilege to help change other people's lives; to acquire generosity of spirit and end up emotionally richer themselves.
