Engaging with Global Issues

Sustainability and climate change are going to be the two defining issues of the next generation, so preparing students to play a positive role is going to be vital. Currently, sustainable initiatives are at the forefront of our minds and we are considering our approach in the broadest sense.

By facilitating participation in recognised schemes such as Eco Schools and practical activities both on-site and in the local community, we are reflecting on our responsibilities as an education provider to fully embed this into the learning experience.

These activities are increasing environmental awareness, expanding the learning experience, inspiring students to protect the natural environment, creating positive change on local ecosystems and cultivating a strong sense of purpose within the college community, rewards which far surpassed our initial aspirations.

Our pupils are eager to address issues such as global warming and biodiversity loss. Their eco-friendly initiatives have included Meat-Free Mondays and the creation of Bug Hotels.
