Creating a sustainable school is a key part of what we aim to do here at HHJS.
We believe that the young people in our care are the leaders and decision makers of the future and as such, their generation will play a pivotal role in determining the future of our planet and its resources. We believe that we as a school, have a major part to play in helping them to know about and understand the issues so that they can make informed decisions when they are older.
In 2006, we successfully applied to become one of the “National College Leading Sustainable schools” and two years later we became the only “Knowledge School for Sustainability” in England through London Challenge. In 2010, we won the National Teaching Awards Leading Sustainable School for London.
As a school we have done so much to promote sustainability. We have solar thermal panels which heat our hot water, Photo Voltaic panels generate electricity for us and we have a wind turbine! We have a superb out door classroom which includes a wonderful pond, growing areas and our well loved chickens! We also sell produce to fund future developments.
We recycle everything you can imagine and work closely with the FairTraid group at St James`s Church.
We provide the children with so many opportunities to participate in an incredibly wide range of extra curricular activities which we hope will become life long interests and passions for them.
