Christ the King Sixth forms are deeply committed to environmental strategies, recognising the urgent need to address the challenges posed by climate change and promote sustainability. We have implemented a range of initiatives to reduce our carbon footprint and promote eco-friendly practices among our staff and students. Our students lead environmental projects to improve environmental awareness within our community. These projects include increasing biodiversity, creation of an edible garden and recycling and reducing waste.
We have been awarded the international accredited Eco-Schools Green Flag Award with Distinction, in recognition for the work that the students have completed within our community to make CTK Sixth form more environmentally friendly and raise eco-awareness within our community.
Through our Sustainability Development Project, we are developing training facilities for our students in green STEM areas to include solar panel and heat pump technology.
Our students won the IKEA X Let’s Go Zero Competition, with their idea to help embed sustainability within our school through an Eco Hub, thus creating a working space for not only our students but the local community and local schools to build skills and take advantage of opportunities to enhance the understanding and application of sustainability. Our hope is to continue to inspire students, staff, and their families and other local schools and our local community to join our journey towards sustainably and in improving their own environmental footprints.
