Woodlands School, part of the Wood View Learning Community, provides specialist education for young people who have physical and sensory difficulties between the ages of two and 19.
Its 76 pupils come from all over Plymouth, Devon and Cornwall.
Dave Marsh, watch manager at Crownhill, said: "We have also helped in decorating some of the rooms at the school to help brighten things up for them.
"The money we have raised will go towards a new minibus which will assist with the pupil's mobility and enable them to get out and about much more. It's really important to us to support the local community."
