The school's eco club members have made a significant contribution to achieving eco schools green flag status.
The club meets every week where we discuss and implement environmental and sustainability issues.

RHS school gardening status
Since starting gardening during the Inspire sessions in September we have succeeded in growing a variety of fruit and vegetables in our allotment area with the financial support of the PTA and Senior Team.
We have just been awarded a Level 3 gardening award from the RHS as a result of our project work during Activities week creating a compost bin and bug hotels.
Our young gardeners have learnt what they can and cannot put on the compost heap and the importance of insects for biodiversity.
We will receive £50 worth of gardening vouchers from the RHS as well as a copy of their excellent book Gardening throughout the year and a gardening calendar with monthly gardening tips.
Next term we will be working towards Level 4 which will involve cooking a meal with our produce. It is an exciting and rewarding activity which our students thoroughly enjoy.
