Ashley Primary School, Surrey, UK
Antarctic trip inspires energy-saving drive
Ashley School’s head teacher returned from an Antarctic trip determined to reduce his school’s carbon footprint after witnessing climate change at first hand. Since then the whole school community has worked together to bring the climate change motive into everything they do. Targets are set to cut energy consumption in the school and home and energy learning is integrated into every subject including art and maths. The school has a biomass boiler, solar heating and PV array and energy efficient lighting is used throughout.
