The school was awarded the Green Flag in 2012. The Eco-Schools Programme Eco-Schools is an international award programme that guides schools on their sustainable journey, providing a simple framework to help make sustainability an integral part of school life. Eco-Schools can help enhance the curriculum and get the whole school united behind something important. Our mission is to help make every school in the country sustainable and to bring about behaviour change in young people and those connected to them so that good habits learned in schools are followed through into homes and communities. What’s more, by addressing environmental issues in school and reducing waste, they'll save money, which can be reinvested elsewhere.
Benefits of joining Eco-Schools include:
- Enhances the curriculum
- Links to the community
