Eco-Schools is an international award programme that supports and guides schools to become more environmentally aware. It provides a framework to help the school become more environmentally friendly and keep eco-issues in the hearts and minds of every member of our school society.
Our staff eco-team and pupil eco-detectives all follow an action plan to develop and undertake environmental improvements in each of the following 9 topics: Energy, Water, Biodiversity, School grounds, Healthy living, Transport, Litter, Waste and Global Citizenship.
