Green Schools Trophy

Each year, all Staffordshire schools are invited to showcase their conservation and environmental projects for a chance to win £50 cash and hold the CPRE Green Schools’ Trophy for a year.

We’re on the lookout for inspiring projects that help make the local environment a better place. This could be through cutting down on single-use plastics, practical conservation work, creating wildlife habitats, promoting energy-saving or waste reduction/recycling, green transport schemes, or any other original idea your school may come up with.

The closing date for the 2022 award was Friday 8 April and the winning school will be notified during the summer term.

The 2020/21 winning school was St Bartholomew’s CE Primary School in Longnor. The children at this small rural school make honey from their own beehives and learn about how pollination is a vital part of both food production and ecology. The previous year’s winners, Kingsmead School in Hednesford, received the award for protecting and rescuing hedgehogs, repairing and improving its school pond, and creating a wildflower meadow.
