Green Tree Schools award

Building on years of work towards the Green Tree Schools award, we were delighted to receive our Gold Award from the Woodland Trust in 2021. 

In collaboration with the Woodland Trust, we are also proud to support the creation of new woodland, to offset our use of paper when printing school publications such as The Castle Magazine. An example certificate from our Spring 2020 edition is below. 

Eco Schools

We are proud to have been an Eco School since 2019, working towards Green Flag status as part of our environmental education programme. 

RHS School Gardening Award 

We have now reached Level Four of the RHS School Gardening Award in recognition of the Pre-Prep Gardening Club's achievements. In order to gain this next level, the children had to:

  • use tools like a professional gardener to dig, rake and sow
  • know how to protect their plants against the weather, pests and diseases 
  • to plan seasonally to harvest produce throughout the year
  • to know how to use the produce from their garden
