As a result of all of our work on becoming more sustainable we won the prestigious Ashden Award school category in 2013. This is an outstanding achievement by being both nationally and internationally renowned, whilst supporting us in being able to lead the way for more schools to follow our footprint. Well done to all of us! See how we went about getting the award by reading our Sustainability Targets
. Mrs Hopkins works with schools in the South East to help them replicate our success through delivering the Ashden LESS C02 programme
Less CO2 School Mentoring
Led by Mrs Hopkins we support local schools supported by Ashden to introduce sustainability in the school. Schools mentored so far include Cove Infants, Heatherside Juniors, Cranford Park, Castle Hill, St Bartholomew's, St Polycarps, St Peters, William Cobbett School. They have all made positive steps in the right direction in raising awareness in their own schools and wider communities reducing their own carbon footprints. In 2016, 14 more schools joined the programme to find out what steps they could take to reduce their energy consumption.
