Parsons Down have now been awarded our Green Flag, making us an official Eco-School!


Eco-Schools is a global environmental programme with 19.5 million children - across 67 countries - taking part. It is a pupil led programme, run by an Eco-Committee comprised of children, teachers, support staff, governors and parents. There are ten Eco-Schools topics for the Eco-Committee to consider:



Global Citizenship

Healthy Living



School Grounds




This year, we are focusing on Energy, Litter, School Grounds, Waste and Water.
