We did it! Smashed the target. True Alleyne’s spirit and British Values. There’s still time to make a donation….
We are hoping to raise as much money as possible for the British Heart Foundation, in memory of Mr Burchell, who was an inspirational teacher to so many students.
Mr Burchell was also a much loved and respected colleague, and so we’d really appreciate your help in raising above and beyond our target of £1 per staff member and student at Alleyne’s Academy (£867).
There will be an Ultimate Dodgeball House event taking place in March, so please spread the word and help us achieve our goal! You can help Alleyne’s Academy raise money for this great cause by donating directly to our fundraising page – https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/AlleynesAcademy . It can be as anonymous, in terms of both name and donation amount, as you would like and payments are secure.
JustGiving sends your donation straight to the British Heart Foundation and automatically reclaims Gift Aid if you are a UK taxpayer, so your donation is worth even more.
Thank you for your support

Year 11 Students’ Fundraising Concert for Dougie Mac Hospice
On Friday 23rd September a group of Year 11 students and their peers hosted a concert in aid of Dougie Mac Hospice. Between the four of the Alleyne’s students involved, through ticket sales and a sponsored head shave, they raised over £500 with the night itself raising £750. The students have worked tirelessly over the summer to plan this, with a great deal of practice to become accomplished in their music and an interview on BBC Radio Stoke. The students involved were:
Fundraising in 2015/2016:
On Wednesday 16th December, we held our annual Christmas market at lunchtime, raising over £300 for the Teenage Cancer Trust. Added to proceeds from our non-uniform day, this means the school is sending £536.25 to the charity. Well done to all the Year 11 tutor groups who ran stalls and a big thank you to everyone who supported it. Our thanks also go to E L Norman Photography of Newcastle Under Lyme for donating the prize of a photo shoot.
Operation Christmas Child
Once again, the staff and students of Alleyne’s Academy have shown their generosity by filling shoe boxes for the Signal Radio Operation Christmas Child run jointly by Signal Radio and Samaritans Purse. They smashed their own record this year by filling a massive 100 shoeboxes with all sorts of items to include toys, stationery, books, soaps, teddy bears and much, much more.
The shoeboxes will go to disadvantaged children in Africa, Eastern Europe and Central Asia; children who would not have a Christmas without the generosity of people in the UK.
Organisers, Ann Leadbeater and Fliss Porter, delivered the shoeboxes to Signal Radio and were delighted with the response they had received from Alleyne’s Academy’s staff and students.
House Sixth Form Bake Off
Sixth Form students made some fantastic cakes for Mrs Eldershaw and her team to taste! The cakes were then sold with £17 going to the Poppy Appeal.
