Since gaining the Eco Schools Silver Award last summer the School’s Eco Committee have been eagerly working towards the prestigious Green Flag Award. The Eco Schools scheme describes itself as the largest sustainable school initiative in the world, and the Green Flag is the highest accolade that the scheme offers. The internationally recognised award recognises the best green spaces in the country, and excellence in environmental activity. We hope to apply for the award, which is awarded by ‘Keep Britain Tidy’, in the summer of 2015, and become only the second secondary school in the Bristol area to achieve one.
Our work towards the award is largely pupil-driven. Currently the Eco Committee is busy organising and improving our recycling scheme, as well as planning a whole school eco-review.
