Children In Need 2023

Last week, we held various events around school to raise money for our chosen charity, Children in Need. There were tutor bake sales, paper plane competitions and our famous Ice Bucket Challenge. Thank you to the entire Kettlethorpe High School community for being, as always, so generous in raising money for Children in Need. Our total this year is over £5000 and counting!
