Our students regularly participate in the Panathlon Challenge for young disadvantaged and disabled people to be able to enjoy sporting competitions. Our Deputy Head, Mr Kielczyk, recorded a short video explaining why he enjoys seeing our students take part in the Panathlon Challenge. Click here to see what Mr Kielczyk thinks.
Shaftesbury is involved with the Jack Petchey Foundation’s reward and recognition initiative which enables us to celebrate the achievements of our students and staff. We also appreciate the additional funding the Scheme gives us and we are grateful to have recently received funding for coaches to take students to the Globe Theatre in March. For more information please click here to view our Jack Petchey Foundation page with information about what we’ve bought for the school with the Jack Petchey Foundation money or click here to visit the Jack Petchey Foundation website.
