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.

Eco-Schools is a national programme that encourages schools to involve pupils in a wide range of environmental initiatives. Since 2018, SGS has been part of this initiative. The Eco-Schools committee, made up of staff and pupils, continually works towards the Eco-Schools accreditation of Green Flag Status. In the Summer term of the 2022-2023 academic year, the school was elated to be awarded the Eco-Schools Green Flag with Distinction.

Each year we conduct a review into 10 different areas of the school: Waste, Biodiversity, Marine, Water, Litter, Transport, School Grounds, Energy, Global Citizenship and Healthy Living. Following the review, the Eco-School committee focussed on three areas. For the 2023-2024 academic year, the pupils chose: Waste, Biodiversity and Energy. For each of our chosen areas, we detail what we are currently doing, our plans for the future and what you can do at home.
