A proud moment for St Gregory’s

St Gregory’s Catholic Science College, Harrow has been shortlisted for the 2018 Sustainable Schools TES Award in recognition of their achievement in encouraging a new generation of sustainability champions.

Their enthusiasm is not limited to the school as pupils are also dedicated to improving their community through gardening and litter picking in their local park and inspiring local businesses to sponsor flower baskets along Kenton Road.

The winners will be revealed at the TES gala awards evening on Friday 22nd June.

Head teacher Andy Prindiville, commented: ’This is a wonderful accolade for St Gregory’s being one of only eight schools to have been shortlisted which is the result of hard work and dedication of the staff, governors, local community and pupils of St Gregory’s’.

TES editor Ann Mroz adds: ‘It is wonderful to see such innovative ideas and best practice emerging from our schools and teachers. We had a record year for entries and the best standard so far, a proud moment for those shortlisted.’
