Shaftesbury High School

On Thursday 5th October between 9:30am and 2:30pm parents with SEN pupils in Years 5 & 6 are invited to Shaftesbury for an Open Day.
Saturday 29 July from 10.30am till 2.30pm West Harrow Recreation Ground.

ADHD support groups will be walking together across the UK to raise awareness of the condition on Saturday 29th July.

We are one of the organisations that have signed up to take part. We feel passionately about our community understanding and knowing what impact ADHD can have on individuals and families who live with the condition.

We would love you to join us on this walk at our local park in West Harrow. We hope the children will be as much involved as you are and plan to have entertainment and a picnic afterwards.

At the same time we would like to raise funds for the charity by making it a sponsored walk. Sponsorship forms are available by emailing:

More importantly the day is about raising awareness so your presence there is ultimately what will make the event.
We are delighted to announce that Sainsbury’s in Hendon have chosen Shaftesbury as their charity of the year. They have already started raising funds for the school and will be holding a charity weekend in early August to raise even more funds for Shaftesbury.
