How we help Key Workers

In the Junior and Senior School buildings, we looked after Key Workers’ and Critical Workers' children while they work hard to save lives and keep the city moving. Many staff, both teaching and support,  volunteered to run this service.

We are incredibly grateful to them that we are able to offer this provision.

Helping Lewisham and Greenwich NHS

We have donated all the school's safety equipment - over 200 safety glasses, 35 masks and 500 disposable aprons from our Science and DT departments for our local Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Trust midwives, supporting women in the community without PPE. 

Our Head of DT, Mr Masters, has been working with Sydenham High to produce and donate safety visors for our NHS frontline staff.  While two of our parents have helped distribute them.

Many of our girls have also been involved in a number of inspiring charitable activities to support those in need during this challenging time. Entrepreneurial Emma, in Year 6, has created a fantastic bespoke line of t-shirts and bags with a special ‘BHS for the NHS’ logo. Emma has designed the products, organised the manufacturing and has set up a website. All of the profits will go to NHS Charities Together, which is fundraising to support NHS staff and volunteers caring for Covid-19 patients.

Please have a look at the website and support Emma and the NHS if you can!
