Students and staff at Upton-by-Chester High School have been delighted to be re-accredited with the Eco-Schools Green Flag International Award for continued excellence in improving the environmental performance of the school and wider community. After her visit, the assessor said that: "The school has very visible Eco-projects throughout its site and students have a real passion towards the topics they are involved in. The idea of rolling any money saved, back into student social areas was exceptionally good and inspired the whole school to be involved in the projects as they benefited everyone. The school was a pleasure to visit and students had a lot to show and talk about. Well done and keep up the great work.”
Students at Upton-by-Chester High School were also congratulated for the way they managed to involve the whole school and the wider community both locally and internationally. This year alone, the school managed a 45% reduction in the general waste it produces and was praised for all its many recycling schemes.
Sarawar in Year 12 said: "Eco-schools is a fantastic scheme led by students, we have been involved at all stages of the decision making process and have gained valuable leadership skills in the process. We're not stopping here and will now aim for the Ambassador level."
