St Clement’s pupils with headteacher Nigel Willingham.

Students at St Clement’s High School in Terrington St Clement have been learning about genetic disorders and raising money for charity.

There were assemblies throughout the week and on the Friday pupils in all year groups took part in national Jeans for Genes Day, paying a pound to swap their uniforms for denim. All the money raised is used to support children with genetic disorders.

 Headteacher Nigel Willingham said: “The students have taken a great interest in this issue, asking very insightful questions. This year we have raised £503, it’s a charity close to all our hearts because of the impact on so many children.”
