The school has also donated the science department’s gloves and safety goggles to the NHS to help out with the personal protective equipment (PPE) shortage.
Head of Guertin House, Catherine Treacy, has joined the volunteers of the Visor Army in making approved visors, while her students have been writing letters to residents in local care homes.
Trips administrator, Priscilla Meigh, has been helping with a food hamper scheme for families who normally get free school meals.
Charlotte Maton, assistant head of the Prep School, undertook a 13-hour bike challenge over 300 miles on the 75th anniversary of VE Day and has so far raised more than £2,000 for NHS Charities Together.
