Raising funds/contributing to charities is one of the key ways we live and breathe our values here at Parrs Wood. We are always looking at how we can support our local community. Parrs Wood is proud of the ways in which our students use different initiatives to raise money to support causes that really mean something to them. Take a look at what some of our students and staff have got up to over the school year.
