The Dorothy Stringer High School, Brighton, demonstrates how they have made an impact on the environment with their green projects.
The school has been promoting sustainability and encouraging bio-diversity with a major project, overseen by a sustainability co-ordinator and a bio-diversity co-ordinator.
They have turned a derelict building into an eco-centre, surrounded by managed woodland. The wood provides ample inspiration for lessons on the diversity of life and a stretch of chalk grassland has created a butterfly haven.
The eco-centre, lit by a sun pipe and heated through solar power, provides experiments into insulation, including human hair.
The school celebrates the International Year of Biodiversity with textiles classes creating fashion from recycled materials to art students painting a huge mural.
