The management team were delighted with the level of support from their fellow students and school staff.

Personal Development Manager at Beacon Academy, Lorna Miller, said, “In addition to supporting our own community within Beacon, the student leadership team has been looking for ways to help those currently seeking refuge in Ukraine.

“We would like to thank everyone who supported the bake sale and helped our students raise a significant amount for the appeal. The student leadership team is justifiably proud of what they have accomplished, as is we are proud of them.”
