The pupil-led Eco Committee worked with the Grounds department to plant trees in order to re-establish the School’s orchard. The orchard dates back over 150 years and this is a fabulous project led by the Grounds team to plant a range of local varieties of apple and pear trees.
The School are working hard on promoting biodiversity around the grounds. In addition to re-establishing the orchard, we are also planting a wildlife friendly hedge along the path from the South Car park to the Art and Design block. This will act as an amazing source of food for a wide range of birds and small mammals, in addition it provides a wildlife corridor to connect different areas of the grounds. Pupils are looking forward to working with the grounds team to establish this new area.
