Watch the video showing how Skinners’ Academy and its students has benefited from working with Green Schools Project.
Read the Kingsmead Case Study to see how one school saved £37,000 over three years.
If you’d like to help your students to do similar work to these three, it’s time to Go Green!
Bishop Thomas Grant
Bishop Thomas Grant School in Lambeth set up their Eco-Team with help from Green Schools Project in September 2015. Students in Years 8 and 9 have been taking the lead and are working on a variety of projects.
As seen in the photo their big achievement last year was to create a vegetable garden, growing potatoes, beans, spinach and courgettes. They also held a recycling competition to see which house could recycle the most. They organised bake sales which raised money for snow leopard conservation. If you watched Planet Earth 2 you’ll have seen the benefit of their actions!
This year they are targeting energy use and looking into ways that they can reduce their usage which will save money and reduce their carbon emissions. They also have ambitious plans to install solar panels!
