Highlights: Congrats to our amazing competition winners!

09/06/2014 by Green Schools

It’s that time of year again when we celebrate the innovative and exciting sustainability projects happening in our schools nationwide. The fourteen impressive winning schools will share a prize fund of £18,000, allowing them to scale up their eco ambitions and make a positive impact on the life of the school community. Well done to all of them!

Our national winners, each winning £3,000, are:

  • Our Lady of Lourdes, Carnforth , whose Eco-committee spread the word around school and got everyone recycling, saving energy, bird watching, and enjoying healthy food Mondays
  • Avonbourne College, Bournemouth. Their hugely pro-active eco group display their Green Schools Revolution banner with pride and are passionate about bees and Fairtrade.

And our regional winners, gaining £1,000 each, are: Riddlesden St Mary's Primary School, Keighley; Epinay Business and Enterprise School, Jarrow; Cardinal Allen High School, Fleetwood; Northfield Junior School, Dronfield; The Long Eaton School, Long Eaton; Rougemont Preparatory School, Newport; Ysgol Syr Hugh Owen, Caernarfom; Coombe Hill Junior School, Kingston upon Thames; Holsworthy C.E. Primary, Cirencester; Southbrook School, Exeter; Drummore Primary School, Drummore; and Kirkcaldy High School, Kirkcaldy.

Each school impressed the judges with the variety and breadth of eco projects, the level of pupil engagement and enthusiasm, and the vision of how to take their plans to the next level. We’re looking forward to keeping in touch with them and their projects!

We’d also like to say a huge well done to the six schools who have been crowned Best in Class for excelling in a particular area of Green Schools Revolution. Judged together with our great partner organisations, congratulations to:
