Pupils at Manor School awarded a coveted Eco-Schools Green Flag.

Green Thumbs Up: Celebrating Eco Success!

Pupils at Manor School have earned international accreditation this academic year, recognising their amazing work in making their school more environmentally friendly and raising eco-awareness in fellow pupils.

The Eco-Schools programme was established in 1994 and is now delivered in more than 70 countries across the globe. More than 1 million pupils attend an Eco-School in England in 2022-23.

With the support of staff, pupils at Manor School first formed an Eco-Committee, then conducted an environmental review, assessing how eco-friendly their school is. They reviewed everything from biodiversity within their school grounds to how pupils and staff members travel to school. Building on their findings, pupils then planned a year of action designed to advance their school’s green credentials, improve their local environment, and protect our planet.

Eco-Schools had this to say about the Manor School Pupils efforts:

"Your hard work and dedication has inspired young people and empowered them with the belief that they can positively impact our planet – this is something incredibly special! Your greatest successes link clearly to the experience of your pupils. Embedding the recycling processes across the school has been a huge success, well done! This is what the best forms of climate action are about – impactful but achievable things that create a positive experience and prompt more action. We love this!"

We have no hesitation in awarding you an Eco-Schools Green Flag, congratulations!

Eco-Schools England Manager, Adam Flint, said: “The Eco-Schools Green Flag award is an internationally recognised symbol of high environmental standards. The pupils and school staff that earn the award deserve immense credit for their hard work, determination, and creativity. Their passion for protecting our planet is an inspiration to us all.”
