Public Benefit Provision
Through its Public Benefit activities, the school endeavours to foster the aims of its founder by engaging with local, national and international bodies, fostering strong relations with the local community and encouraging its pupils to contribute positively, willingly and with altruism, for the greater good.
To further these aims, the school's Community Links Working Party has devised the following Mission Statement for the school's community activities, alongside which all our current and future Public Benefit and Community activities should be judged:
- Acknowledge that by attending LEH, pupils receive a privileged education, and that privilege comes with responsibiliy;
- Instil a culture of participation in the service of the community, locally, nationally and internationally;
- Raise pupils' awareness of issues which concern those less fortunate than themselves, challenging their perceptions of others;
- Provide opportunities for pupils to engage in activities with members of the local community, in particular school children and the elderly;
- Provide a stimulating extra-curricular programme which embraces engagement with national and international bodies;
- Engage the whole school in charitable giving;
- Facilitate the use of the school buildings by groups and schools in the local area;
- Develop educational partnerships with local cluster schools.
