CPRE Staffordshire green schools award scheme

CPRE school trophy CPRE school trophy Sue Kneill-Boxley

The winner of the CPRE Staffordshire Award for 2017 is Two Gates community primary school in Tamworth. Youth groups are invited to showcase their environmental and conservation projects to bid for the 2018 award ...


We received some very impressive entries for the CPRE Staffordshire Awards 2017, from litter-picking, school hedgerow maintenance and crafting willow hurdles to growing, and using, school-grown food and supporting local food initiatives. Two Gates Community Primary School in Tamworth was chosen as the winner and was presented with an engraved CPRE trophy and monetary award to contribute towards their environmental work. 

Previously, Stafford Manor High School were the 2016 winners for the production, and use, of their own produce, using environmentally obtained local materials for their garden and assisting with Stafford's House of Bread community garden project. You can watch Stafford Manor High School's project video on YouTube.

In addition to hosting our own award, we are also sponsoring the Youth & Education category of Stafford Borough Council's Green Awards, judged by a panel or representatives from various groups and organisations including Stafford Borough Council. In a double whammy, Stafford Manor High also attained this award and were presented with a crab apple tree and a cheque to help them to continue with their excellent work. A full list of last year's winners can be found here and entries for this year will be open later in the year.

Please complete the form below if you would like to make a bid for the CPRE Staffordshire Award in 2018. All Staffordshire schools may contest, whether rural or urban. We are looking for inspiring projects that contribute to the protection, conservation or improvement of the local environment, whether through practical conservation work, energy saving or waste reduction/recycling, clean transport schemes, self-sufficiency or any other original  idea your school may come up with.

The closing date for submissions is midnight on Friday 6th July 2018 and we will be accepting submissions from April 2017. The winning school will receive a monetary prize towards their school's environmental projects and will hold the trophy for a year. Winners will be notified at the start of the school autumn term.
