Eco-Schools

 

Eco schools logo 3At Rickmansworth School we are passionate about the environment and we are working hard towards becoming a sustainable and environmentally friendly school. In January 2022, we were very proud to be awarded the Eco-Schools Green Flag.

Eco-Schools is a global programme across 67 countries, making it the largest educational programme on the planet. The Green Flag is an international accreditation which has recognised and rewarded young people’s environmental actions for over 25 years. More information regarding the Eco-Schools programme can be found on their website.

The Rickmansworth Eco Committee has representatives from each year group who work together to achieve and sustain our Green Flag accreditation. The Eco Committee works alongside staff to make our school greener and more sustainable.

We raise environmental awareness through assemblies and campaigns, sharing our work on social media and the school bulletin.

We work closely with the Horticultural Society, caring for our school garden and planting trees, through initiatives such as the Queens Green Canopy.  The produce from our garden is used in food technology lessons and plants are sold to members of the school community to raise funds for the Horticultural Society.
