Highgate is committed to raising awareness of environmental sustainability amongst our pupils, their families and our staff.
Highgate is working to become a sustainable school by providing relevant and impactful information and teaching regarding the environment and sustainable living, and by exemplifying best practice in all our activities.
Sustainability is one of the core objectives in our School Development Plan. Following a period of review and consultation with pupils, parents, staff, consultants and Governors we will draw up a clear and comprehensive Sustainability and Environmental Policy. Our aim is to set measurable and ambitious short term and longer term targets. Our Governors’ Estates Committee has been designated as the monitoring body for progress of the action plan’s objectives and we have appointed our own Sustainability Lead from the Governing body.
Highgate is among the top 10% of London schools when it comes to inspiring pupils to transform their travel and reduce the number of car journeys made.
