Pupils and staff worked with Asylum Welcome in Autumn 2021 to host activity days for refugees living in Oxfordshire on Sunday afternoons here at Teddies. A hugely successful gift appeal was also launched, with the Teddies Community providing presents for over 250 individuals. 

We are pleased to announce that Asylum Welcome won the vote to be the St Edward’s School Charity for 2022.

A message from Warden Alastair Chirnside:

'I am delighted that Teddies pupils, staff and parents have chosen to support Asylum Welcome as our School Charity this year. Our local North Oxford community is very important to us and the vital work which Asylum Welcome undertakes - advising and supporting vulnerable adults, young people and families - enables them to rebuild their lives and become part of that community. We look forward to working with the charity on new fundraising initiatives.'
