Whole School Community Day

The main symbol of the school's commitment to community action is the Whole School Community Day which takes place on the Wednesday of the final week of the Summer Term.

On this day every boy and member of staff is involved in either community or charity based activities. In July 2012 the school hosted 1,300 pupils from 28 local Primary Schools in a mini-Olympiad, organised, run and delivered by staff and boys to promote the school’s contribution to the Olympic legacy programme, a contribution which the British Olympic Association (BOA) used as an example of good practice in this field. The visiting children enjoyed a vast range of sporting, artistic, musical and academic challenges, culminating in a vast parade of nations, the massed-choirs singing anthems written for the day by Tonbridge boys, and the awarding of over 500 medals.

This was followed in the evening by a 5k charity fun run with boys and local residents taking part together, many in fancy dress, which raised a considerable sum for a small local charity.
