Poynton High School Students Take Steps to Raise Cash for New Minibus


The 15th July was Poynton High School’s Whole School Sponsored Walk, an example of the wider engagement and celebratory traditions of the school. On a glorious, sunny day, students walked an impressive 8 miles from their school on Yew Tree Lane to Lyme Park and back again…hopefully raising money to help purchase a new school minibus.

At the time of writing Poynton had raised over £3,000 through sponsorship and donations, with more money still being collected by students.

“A huge thank you to everyone involved in organising this, it was a herculean effort to marshal over 1000 teenagers around our local community! “ said David Waugh, Head Teacher at the School.

Donations can be made to Poynton High School’s Just Giving site at  https://www.justgiving.com/Friends-of-Poynton/
