St Gregory’s Catholic Science College, in Kenton, has been recognised for its environmental action, achieving the Eco Schools Green Flag Award for the fifth consecutive time.

A team of environmentally-conscious pupils at the school have been picking up litter in the local park and tending to the school’s award-winning Eco Garden, growing an array of fruit and vegetables. They have also been nurturing wildlife in the school’s Eco Pond and Bug Hotel.

In addition to carrying out extensive recycling initiatives throughout the school, pupils have designed a bespoke school face mask in order to help reduce the waste created from discarded single-use PPE.

Headteacher, Andrew Prindiville, said: ‘Our whole school community is absolutely delighted to have achieved this award for the fifth time, reflecting the sustained hard work, commitment and support from pupils, staff and governors combined.’
