Following the successful lottery bid at the start of 2012 pupils have worked tirelessly growing and developing the vegetable garden area. The pupils have enjoyed taking home produce to eat and the Summer term culminated in the school entering the prestigous RHS Tatton Flower Show where they won the secondary schools ‘vegetable trug’ competition. The pupils harvested the remainder of their crops before the winter set in and are planning for next season.
The school has also been awarded levels 3 and 4 in the RHS school garden campaigns and are now working on growing all year round and making an impact on the local community to achieve level 5 the top most level awarded by the RHS to school gardens.
Autumn saw the installation of a greenhouse.
The garden club takes place every Tuesday lunchtime and after school and in the Spring/Summer months.
