For schools


“We are proud to have achieved green flag status, and Catherine really helped us get there. It was great having support with the reviews and action plans, and also just the enthusiasm she brought to moving Eco-Schools forward.”
Head Teacher, Fleetville Infant School


We can help you make your school an Eco-School.

Our service takes away much of the paperwork associated with Eco-Schools and lets you focus on the bit you do best; delivering inspiring teaching and learning.

With current budget pressures, you need sustainability to save your school money and become part of how you work, rather than an “add on”. Our goal is to help you achieve this, so that you don’t need to cut your commitment to the environment.

We can offer support with:

  • Environmental reviews
  • Action plans
  • Running inspiring INSET days
  • Eco-Committee clerking
  • Writing effective funding applications to improve energy efficiency and school grounds

“Many thanks for leading the INSET day session today. I think that we covered a lot of ground and have a defined way forward with Eco-Schools. Everyone here seems to be up for the journey!”

Head, Alban City School
