The College encourages and supports students and staff to get involved in all kinds of voluntary and charity activities.
The Community Service Programme at Seaford has been expanding over the last few years, and there are many ways that we foster a community spirit. We facilitate this through: Community Service Afternoons and a whole School Community Action Day, Duke of Edinburgh, the Combined Cadet Force, sponsored activities and challenges, Children in Need, hosting Macmillan Cancer Appeal Coffee Mornings, and supporting the homeless charity Stone Pillow in Chichester.
All our lives are enriched through these new experiences and the opportunity to serve in local and global contexts.
Making a meaningful difference to our community is something we really encourage here at Seaford. We firmly believe that when students help their community, they gain extra self-belief, develop a strong sense of character, and learn fundamental skills that help them to become well-rounded, positive individuals.
Our most impressive initiative is Seaford’s Big Day Out, created by Headmaster John Green a few years ago. The idea behind this initiative is that, for one day, every student at Seaford College goes out into the community and helps on a project in locations across Sussex and Hampshire.
The main idea is to make a positive difference to the surrounding community. Our students are extremely fortunate to study and live in such a beautiful part of the country – it is only right that they put something back."
It was a really good day and nice to help the community and make a difference to the vulnerable."

There are lots of people in need on the estate and projects like this can help them keep on top of things. I just want to say thank you to Hyde and Seaford College for their help."
