Volunteer & Friends of Doubletrees

Volunteers bring with them a range of skills and experience that can enhance the learning opportunities of our pupils. Our Senior Leadership Team and staff therefore welcome and encourage volunteers from the local community.

We can offer short-term placements (for students or volunteers who wish to support us during a specific event) or those that can commit their time; longer-term or regular volunteering is available.

Volunteering is a wonderful way in which you can ‘give back’ to the school.  It is great for an individual’s wellbeing and you will get to meet and work alongside our wonderful team.

How do I become involved?

Complete an application form (to be found on the website or ask at Reception)

If what you can offer matches what our learners need, we will be in touch to organise an 'induction meeting / informal interview'.

Undertake an informal interview / induction meeting

We want you to enjoy your volunteering experience with us and therefore conduct an informal interview to ensure volunteering is the right choice for you and the best fit for us.

Undertake a DBS check

Safeguarding of our learners and staff is our priority and therefore, volunteers who wish to volunteer on a regular basis (3 or more times in a 30-day period, or once a month or more), will be asked to undertake a DBS check.

If you can only give your time on an ad-hoc basis, this will not prevent you volunteering with us, but we do ask that you work under the supervision of a member of the school staffing team.  A risk assessment will be undertaken in line with school policy.


We encourage work-placements and students who may already be involved with or looking to enter a career in education.  Either:

  • Ask your student co-ordinator or similar to make contact with our Office Manager
  • Contact us direct
