Adrenaline junkie friends at Windsor Girls' School are urging people to sponsor their 10,000ft leap from a plane to raise cash for a hospice.
A-level students Rebecca Joel, Zoe King, Radiha Yackub, Saahirha Nadeem, all 18, and Emmanuelle Ugbomah, and Lucy Bursoot, both 17, will do the skydive on March 16.
The Imperial Road sixth formers will jump one after each other high above Oxfordshire to raise money for Thames Hospicecare in Hatch Lane.
To take part they have to raise a minimum of £2,370 between them, of which £990 pays for the skydives, with the rest and anything above going to the hospice.
Rebecca, who came up with the idea, said she wants to 'give something to the community' and her mum Amanda, works in the charity's finance department.
She said: "I have done some volunteering there and from it I could see how the money helps people.
"The hospice is very close to my heart."
