Hinchingbrooke Academy, Huntingdon

rse2Hinchingbrooke Academy is a secondary school in Camridgeshire with approx. 1800 students on roll, situated on a large site and fortunate to have Hinchingbrooke House, a listed historical property on their grounds (see right).

Last year they set up a new Student Eco Committee and applied to receive trees from ERS as their first Eco project. In March 2016 the school received 50 saplings from us to set up their own school tree nursery. Rosie Eacott has kindly provided this feedback and some photos from their tree planting event.

“Just thought I would let you know that we had a very successful tree planting event.  Our Eco students were joined by the Town Mayor, representatives from the Environment Department of the local council, former student (also involved in a local archeological tree project), local press, our school’s tree surgeon as well as local Councillors and a representative from the Town Council/Huntingdon in Bloom.”rse
