We are delighted to announce that students at Abbey Gate College have earned an international accreditation this academic year, recognising their amazing work in making our College more environmentally friendly and raising eco-awareness in fellow students.

The Eco-Schools programme was established in 1994 and is now delivered in more than 70 countries across the globe. More than 1 million students attended an Eco-School in England in 2022-23.

Our students first formed an Eco-Committee, then collaborated with Mrs Sanders to conduct an environmental review, assessing how eco-friendly our school is.

They reviewed everything from biodiversity within our school grounds to how students and staff members travel to school. Building on their findings, the students and Mrs. Sanders then planned a year of action designed to advance our school’s green credentials, improve our local environment, and protect our planet.

Eco-Schools England Manager, Adam Flint, said: “The Eco-Schools Green Flag award is an internationally recognised symbol of high environmental standards. The students and school staff that earn the award deserve immense credit for their hard work, determination, and creativity. Their passion for protecting our planet is an inspiration to us all.”
