In May 2020 one of our senior pupils, Daniel, was diagnosed with a rare form of brain tumour. He and his family were supported by the charity ‘Funding Neuro’ and are campaigning for more research into childhood brain cancers.

Funding Neuro hopes to begin a clinical trial within the next year to treat 18 children with DIPG/DMG. Sadly, Daniel passed away in December but this trial and others like it will not only give real hope to many suffering from this type of tumour. It will also support vital research into a largely untouched area of childhood cancer, improving the outcome for many more.

This session Hutchesons’ will be supporting Funding Neuro as our school charity. Funding Neuro is a Glasgow based charity that funds research and aims to accelerate the development of new treatments for the most serious neurological conditions. More details can be found on their website :

Due to Covid restrictions we are unable to hold many of our usual fundraising events so we have adapted and will be streaming a music concert featuring our senior school musicians and there will be a few cameo appearances from international music artists. There will be tracks from the 1980s to the current day – so something for everyone.  Details of how to purchase a ticket will follow but here are some images of the pupils filming the concert.


Other fundraising events to date include:

  • The S5 and S6 pupils held a pay-per-view football match and auction at Hamilton Accies stadium last month and raised £62,000.
  • We have also started selling Hutchie facemasks to pupils, staff and former pupils with all profits going to the charity.
  • Our English Department organised an online 90 minute treasure hunt on Sunday, November and raised £2,600
