Our first ever Giving Day has been a wonderful success, the support and notes of gratitude for Colyton Grammar School has been overwhelming, with over £43,000 raised!  Many of you shared the activities on your social media accounts, donated and encouraged others to give. Thank you. 

The 36 hour fundraising challenge was filled with students attending school in their House Colour accessories, special events such as a Giving Day University Challenge, Gratitude tree, Shakespeare-a-thon and a Giving Day quiz for all students. Exeter Chiefs players attended school on the Thursday as part of our gifted sponsorship packed from an alum. Our Year 8 students enjoyed a PE lesson with the players! Friday was turn of the staff Ice Bucket Challenge 

The Old Colytonian Society support was amazing, you helped us unlock match funding with over 25 of you donating (the most we've ever had before!). With some of you getting involved in encouraging others to give too! 

This activity has brought a sense of fun, belonging and importantly allowing students of today and tomorrow the best opportunities during their time here at Colyton. Thank you for your support.
