Bringing out the Best

Apples and Orchards Project

Our Eco group and their parents came along to plant the first trees in our school orchard. We had six trees donated to us by the 'Orchards for Schools' project and identified an area of the school grounds that will be fenced off and turned into an area for all year groups to use. Our long term plan is to have fruit trees, seating areas and other greenery. Thanks to all the parents for supporting us and to the 'Orchards for Schools' project.  

Orchards for Schools is a Heritage Lottery Funded project delivered by the East of England Apples and Orchards Project, a registered charity.

Orchards for Schools provides schools with their own heritage fruit orchard and the teaching materials to enable them to get the most from their fruit trees.
