Our school is one of many that is participating in the Eco- Schools programme. This is an international scheme that is intended to make eco issues more relevant to the day to day lives of our children. The scheme is divided into eight key areas - Litter, Waste Minimisation, Transport, Healthy Living, Energy, Water, School Grounds and Global Citizenship.

We have achieved the Bronze and Silver standard and in July 2010 we gained the top eco award, the Green Flag.
