Great start to Christmas countdown

We were thrilled to be invited by our local community of Cranleigh to take part in the switch-on of their Christmas lights – after Jigsaw pupils helped to choose the impressive Christmas tree on a recent visit to local grower Santa Fir.

Jigsaw fun day for Children in Need

BBC Children in Need inspired a great day of fun – and serious fundraising – as pupils, staff and Jigsaw+ adult clients dressed up and enjoyed a host of sponsored activities. These ranged from football to a talent show, making lava lamps in sponsored science, and a cake sale.

Last chance to enter Jigsaw Run
