Eco-Schools


Stockport Grammar School is committed to minimising our environmental impact and offering our pupils, their parents and everyone who visits the school a safe and healthy space.

In the Autumn term of the 2019-2020 academic year, the school gained the Eco-Schools Bronze Award – the first step towards achieving Green Flag status. We conducted a review into ten different areas of the school: Waste, Biodiversity, Marine, Water, Litter, Transport, School Grounds, Energy, Global Citizenship and Healthy Living.

Following this review, the Junior and Senior School pupils decided to look in detail at the first four areas (Biodiversity, Marine, Waste and Water), where we feel we can make improvements. In these areas we will detail what we are currently doing, our plans for the future and what you can do at home to help.

Biodiversity is about caring for all plants, animals and insects.

Marine focuses on protecting all rivers, canals, lakes and oceans.

Waste looks at the five Rs – Refuse, Reduce, Reuse, Repair, Recycle.

Water focuses on protecting an important natural resource.

We look at the other six areas – Energy, Global Citizenship, Healthy Living, Litter, School Grounds and Transport.
