Students Championing Change
Sixthform Community

High Performance Learning (HPL) philosophy and framework in embedded in our school, and key HPL values include perseverance, collaboration and concern for society – qualities which we want to instil in our student body, both for their learning, as well as personal growth. Three of our Lower Sixth Students recently demonstrated these values when they attended the Cheltenham Education Partnership event, “ChangeMakers” held at the Cheltenham Town Hall.

The aim of the event was to bring young people from across Cheltenham’s secondary schools and colleges together to meet with industry specialists working in the field of climate change and environmental sustainability. The focus of their discussions was about what actions could be taken to work towards achieving sustainability across Cheltenham’s schools and communities.

During the event, students learnt about how we can, as a society, make greener decisions, and that by making small changes we can have a profound impact on our planet. From here, Mrs Safe, our Head of Science Faculty, has arranged a weekly meeting where our students will meet to discuss ways in which they can raise the profile of climate change and sustainability within the Senior School, from recycling, encouraging greener travel and eating sustainably.

We cannot wait to see what greener changes our students are going to make in our community and how far reaching the benefits will be.
