Eco Committee

Eco Committee, led by Miss Harborne and Mr Fuhrmann

Our Eco Committee works to improve the sustainability of the school by building ‘greenness’ into the day to day life of the school.

Eco-schools is an international award programme that guides schools on their sustainable journey to help imbed these principles into school life. In September 2021, we were awarded the Green Flag Eco-Schools Award, which signifies our continuing commitment to sustainable living and the protection of our planet. 

The Eco Committee worked together to write an Eco Code to reflect our ongoing project on Waste:

  • Waste can be recycled
  • All that landfill is no good
  • Save the planet by reusing and recycling
  • Today we can make a difference
  • Everyone can do their bit

For the year 2021-2022 the Eco Committee are focussing on continuing to develop the school grounds to support biodiversity.
