How to get involved


The College was delighted to be awarded Gold in its first year of participating in Green Impact.  We also won the highly commended best newcomer award and look forward to building on this success.

Any student can become a member of the College's Green Impact team.  We work on a number of different areas to improve the College's green credentials.  The key areas are listed below:

  • Biodiversity and community
  • Catering and events
  • Embedding and communication
  • Energy
  • Grounds
  • Procurement
  • Travel
  • Waste and recycling
  • Water
Fairtrade Accreditation

In November 2017, the College's Governing Body agreed to use Fairtrade products wherever possible, and to seek accreditation from the Fairtrade Foundation.  In order to demonstrate and continue our commitment, where possible, the College will make Fairtrade products available, serve Fairtrade products at College meetings and events, and host events to educate members of College about Fairtrade.
