Accrington school shortlisted for environmental award
Education starts in the garden at an East Lancashire high school, which has been short-listed as one of the top three environmental schools in the country.

Pupils and staff from Accrington's St Christopher's CE High School will attend an awards ceremony in London next month to find out if they have won the prestigious national sustainable schools award.

Education starts in the garden at an East Lancashire high school, which has been short-listed as one of the top three environmental schools in the country.

Pupils and staff from Accrington's St Christopher's CE High School will attend an awards ceremony in London next month to find out if they have won the prestigious national sustainable schools award.

An in-house eco group has been established at the Queen's Road West school for five years and co-ordinator Wendy Litherland said the children learnt a lot from growing, harvesting and selling what they produced.

She said: "The kids are the ones that run the project and their enthusiasm makes me drive it forward.

"We use the polytunnel in science, geography, PHSE and special needs lessons and it gives the children employability skills.

"So far, a lot of them have gone onto jobs in agriculture.

"The pupils run this and finance it themselves, so it really does help."
