Green Flag Award!

Today (17 June 2015) we received the letter and certificate confirming that we had been awarded our Green Flag!  Congratulations to Mrs Hadley and the Eco Team who have worked really hard in school to help us obtain this award.  The Assessor commented that:
"The Eco-Committee were totally enthused about their Eco work and were very excited to show me around the school, pointing out all of the exciting projects that they have instigated and been involved with!  The school thoroughly deserve their first Green Flag award.  Keep up the good work!"
