Over the past year our Roots & Shoots group has flourished.

Logo: Pledge 4 Veg

Our nationally recognized Pledge 4 Veg campaign was an amazing success. For those of you who haven’t heard of Pledge 4 Veg it was an initiative thought up by some of our year 8 pupils who decided that they wanted to make a huge change in our community, so we started asking people in the local area to sign a promise that they would grow veg over the next year the following film explains all…

The final stage of Pledge 4 Veg was to give everyone who came to our annual Summer Eco Fair a free pot with veg growing in it. Lancashire County Council are rolling this project out across all of Lancashire as a model.

This Year we have also:

  • earned our Eco Schools ‘Green Flag Award’,

  • been nominated as TES ‘Outstanding Sustainable School’,
  • won a local competition called the ‘It’s Our Planet Awards’ in the Green Building Category for our new sixth form centre the ‘Crossland Building’
